All Things Tropical Cyclones 

Welcome to the homepage of the TTUHRT, which has been documenting wind flow characteristics of landfalling tropical cyclones since 1998. Currently, a fleet of 48 meteorological towers (dubbed StickNet) and 2 Ka-band mobile Doppler radar trucks are deployed by the TTUHRT to gather pertinent wind and thermodynamic measurements during land-falling tropical cyclones.


Our Mission: TTUHRT is dedicated to mitigating the effects of landfalling hurricanes on life and property.


A list of deployments conducted by the TTUHRT can be found under the Deployments and Safety tab, along with information about our instrument suite.
