Abstract

Current profile measurements below a hurricane were monitored using airborne expendable current profilers deployed during the passage of East Pacific and Atlantic hurricanes in 1984 and 1985. The sea surface temperature decrease and storm generated surface and subsurface current fields were measured. The most crucial parameters in the ocean response to a hurricane seemed to be the storm's translational motion and its maximum wind radius. The complex ocean dynamics induced are discussed.
