Abstract:

Our primary goal is to improve our understanding of air-sea surface flux processes in high winds specifically in the complex conditions of tropical hurricanes where swell, sea spray and secondary boundary layer circulations play a role. Our ultimate goal and prime motivation for this work is to parameterize these new observations and improve the accuracy of hurricane intensity prediction.
