Hurricane’s Shear

Author: Kern E. Kenyon

The radial shear from an elementary theory is proposed to be operating inside a hurricane throughout a major portion of its life cycle: horizontal shear equals the Coriolis parameter. Typical values for the maximum wind speeds at sea level and storm diameters can satisfy this equation, but more detailed observations will be needed in the future for a convincing confirmation.
