Abstract

Using data from Hurricanes Daisy 1958 and Inez 1966, we have applied Deardorff's (1972b) planetary boundary layer parameterization scheme to compute the surface exchange coefficients for these storms. The drag coefficients compare quite well with previous budget study estimates provided we assume that Charnock's (1955) or Cardone's (1969) relation for the roughness length is valid.
