Recently published, Rutgers University-led study utilized Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS) data to incorporate coastal water conditions into predicating storm intensities. Data from the observations were fed into ocean and atmospheric models to quantify the role of baroclinic processes during tropical cyclone events. The scientists emphasize the importance of coastal baroclinic observations to coastal populations with sea level rise and migration of tropical storms steadily increasing.
