Some climatological characteristics of hurricanes and tropical storms, Gulf and East Coasts of the United States.
A climatology of hurricane factors important to storm surges is presented for the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts of the United States. Factors presented are: frequency of entering, exiting, and alongshore hurricanes; ...
Surface winds near the center of hurricanes (and other cyclones).
Observed wind and pressure data from 14 hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic coast of the United States are presented. Data from three tropical storms off the middle Atlantic coast are also included.
Evaporation maps of the United States.
The geographic distributions of average annual class A pan evaporation, lake evaporation, and class A pan coefficient are shown based on data for the period 1946-55 at 146 stations. Also, the geographic distributions of ...
