Modifications were made to Corgnatis 1971 steady state, symmetrical hurricane model, which was based on a model proposed by Riehl 1963, and in which bulk aerodynamic transfer formulas were used to predict the air-sea interaction below a specified vortex. The modifications resulted in a more flexible model in which hurricane intensity was controlled by sensible and latent heat fluxes, which were in turn dependent on the ocean surface temperature. A boundary layer model based on similarity theory was then used, to specify air-sea interaction, by replacing the bulk transfer formulas with Cardones 1969 extension of Blackadars 1965 two-layer neutral, baroclinic boundary layer model.
