by NHC are performed by NHC’s Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) and the Satellite Analysis Branch (SAB) in Camp Springs, Maryland. The Advanced Dvorak Technique (ADT; Olander and Velden 2007 ) is an objective method from University of Wisconsin–Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (UW-CIMSS) that also provides geostationary satellite intensity estimates of tropical cyclones. Geostationary imagery is supplemented by passive microwave imagery from NOAA polar

as the primary platforms. GOES-East and Meteosat-9 provide the visible and infrared imagery that serve as input for position and intensity estimates based on the Dvorak classification technique ( Dvorak 1984 ; Velden et al. 2006 ). Subjective Dvorak intensity estimates used by NHC are performed by NHC's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) and the Satellite Analysis Branch (SAB) in Camp Springs, Maryland. The Advanced Dvorak Technique (ADT; Olander and Velden 2007 ) is an objective
