Abstract:

After a brief summary of salient observational facts about cumulus convection in the tropical ambient and about tropical cyclones, models for the cyclone-scale structure and maintenance of the quasisteady mature stage of a hurricane are presented and evaluated. Principal attention is devoted to the model developed by Riehl and Malkus in the late 1950s, and to the model developed by Carrier in the early 1970s.
