Adapting the Knaff and Zehr wind-pressure relationship for operational use in Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres

  title={Adapting the Knaff and Zehr wind-pressure relationship for operational use in Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres},
  author={Joe Courtney and John A Knaff},
The issue of the relationship between the central mean sealevel pressure (Pc) and maximum mean near-surface wind* (the wind-pressure relationship, hereafter WPR) in a tropical cyclone (TC) has been the subject of ongoing debate for many decades and a number of relationships have been developed during this period. This is demonstrated by the fact that the three Australian Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres (TCWCs) have each used a different WPR: Perth used the method of Atkinson and Holliday (1977… CONTINUE READING
