On the distribution of subsidence in the hurricane eye

  title={On the distribution of subsidence in the hurricane eye},
  author={Wayne H. Schubert and Christopher M. Rozoff and Jonathan L. Vigh and Brian D. McNoldya and James P. Kossinb},
Two hurricane eye features that have yet to be adequately explained are the clear-air moat that forms at the outer edge of the eye and the hub cloud that forms near the circulation centre. To investigate whether these features can be explained by the spatial distribution of the subsidence field, we have derived an analytical solution of the Sawyer–Eliassen transverse circulation equation for a three-region approximation with an unforced central eye region of intermediate or high inertial… CONTINUE READING
