This paper presents our effort in designing and implementing an advanced hurricane simulation system on the platform of the World Wide Web for the purpose of supporting decisional processes and hazard mitigation. The development of the system is based on amalgamated methodologies which come from diverse disciplines and is an integration of a variety of techniques. Superior to other similar systems in hurricane study, our system assembles and utilizes information and techniques in a more flexible and robust manner by taking advantage of system layering technique, component modeling strategy and database technologies. Preliminary experiments have been conducted to demonstrate the performance of the system.
