November 9-10, 2009


Florida International University and National Hurricane Center
Miami, FL


Discuss the recent accomplishments, status and plans for the HFIP program. Members of all the HFIP teams are invited and the meeting will involve presentations from each team with a focus on what was learned in the way of science by the teams over the past year. This will be a prelude to the more important task of us discussing and then preparing a work/execution plan to address each of the science areas to our best abilities. The plan will include a preliminary draft of the HFIP related activities of each organization with their milestones/deliverables and when over the next 1-3 years.
