On the maximum observed wind speed in a randomly sampled hurricane
Solow, Andrew R.

There is considerable interest in detecting a long-term trend in hurricane intensity possibly related to large-scale ocean warming. This effort is complicated by the paucity of wind speed measurements for hurricanes occurring in the early part of the observational record. Here, results are presented regarding the maximum observed wind speed in a sparsely randomly sampled hurricane based on a model of the evolution of wind speed over the lifetime of a hurricane.

Metrics of hurricane-ocean interaction : vertically-integrated or vertically-averaged ocean temperature? Price, James F. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-05-05)The ocean thermal field is often represented in hurricane-ocean interaction by a metric termed upper Ocean Heat Content (OHC), the vertical integral of ocean temperature in excess of 26°C. High values of OHC have proven ...
