The minimum pressure that can occur within a hurricane is related to the temperature of the sea surface over which it moves. This is done by making certain assumptions and synthesizing an eye sounding, which is used to compute the lowest pressure of the storm. The validity of the computed sounding is tested on eight hurricanes. A series of composite 200-mb charts is constructed from five of the eight hurricanes which reached great intensity to show one synoptic situation which results in maximum deepening. These are contrasted to a similar series of composite charts prepared for storms which reached only minor intensity.
