This resource includes in-situ, radar, satellite observations of wind, rainfall along the North Carolina coast, and in particular the areas surrounding Albemarle Sound and Pamlico Sound, which encompasses the downstream estuaries of Chowan River, Pamlico River, and Neuse River, during the hurricanes Florence and Michael. To better analyze extreme events such as hurricanes, scientists acquire hydro-meteorological observations from multiple sources including non-regular sources such as beyond the government-operated weather and hydrological stations data. This project provides observational data for two hurricanes from various resources and stores for further use. Thus, could potentially help scientists to improve weather forecast models for better heavy rainfall forecasts after hurricane landfalls. Improvement of weather forecast models for hurricane landfalls will benefit hurricane preparation especially for the states along the coastlines, leading to reduced damages.
