Abstract:

The characteristics of current velocities in the upper ocean under moving tropical cyclones TCs were obtained in many theoretical, observational, and numerical studies. Direct current measurements under TCs during their passages include moored current meters, airborne expendable current profilers AXCPs, drifting buoys, electromagnetic-autonomous profiling explorer EM-APEX floats, Surface Velocity Program SVP Niiler, 2001 drifters, and acoustic Doppler current profilers ADCPs.
