Abstract

A study was conducted which combined damage assessments with inferred low-level wind fields for several recent hurricanes to examine their relationship. In developing the estimated near-surface wind fields, the radial velocity images from Hurricane Opal which were obtained from NEXRAD tapes were of primary interest. The method employed using these images was the synthetic dual-Doppler (SDD) analysis.
