Reason why Hurricanes seem stronger

Posted 12-16-2019 at 08:04 PM by Cambium

There are two ways to determine the strength of a hurricane. One is to measure the winds with an airplane. The Air Force always flies at 10,000 ft. and empirical relationships are used to convert the 10,000 ft. winds to surface winds. The other is to drop a barometer into the eye and measure the pressure.
