Algorithms for the retrieval of atmospheric winds in precipitating systems from downward-pointing, conically-scanning airborne Doppler radars are presented. The focus in the paper is on two radars: the Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (IWRAP) and the High-altitude IWRAP (HIWRAP). The IWRAP is a dual-frequency (C and Ku band), multi-beam (incidence(More)
7 In this work we determine key model parameters for rapidly intensifying Hurricane Guillermo 8 (1997) using the Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF). The approach is to utilize the EnKF as 9 a tool to only estimate the parameter values of the model for a particular data set. The 10 assimilation is performed using dual-Doppler radar observations obtained during(More)
Stroke is the most devastating complication after ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation with a 19% incidence and 65% mortality in the pediatric population. Current pediatric VAD technology and anticoagulation strategies alone are suboptimal. VAD implantation assisted by computational methods (CFD) may contribute reducing the risk of cerebral(More)
