An Exploration of Wind Stress Calculation Techniques in Hurricane Storm Surge Modeling

  title={An Exploration of Wind Stress Calculation Techniques in Hurricane Storm Surge Modeling},
  author={Kyra M. Bryant and Muhammad Akbar},
As hurricanes continue to threaten coastal communities, accurate storm surge forecasting remains a global priority. Achieving a reliable storm surge prediction necessitates accurate hurricane intensity and wind field information. The wind field must be converted to wind stress, which represents the air-sea momentum flux component required in storm surge and other oceanic models. This conversion requires a multiplicative drag coefficient for the air density and wind speed to represent the air… CONTINUE READING
