The authors report that a high resolution general circulation model now being used at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and Ames Research Center doubles the resolution of most global weather models and dramatically advances scientists' ability to predict the course of hurricanes. They demonstrate the model's abilities by testing it on four storms: Gustav and Isadore in 2002 and Bonnie and Charley in 2004.
