Hurracines - everything we know about them - data for simulation required!

Hello.

I am writing with request for some data related to hurracines and cyclons for my university project. Project is a hurricane 2d simulation written in C++/Qt. The biggest problems we already have concern matematical aspect of phenomena.

 

First of all, we need to know what size of hurricane depends on? I know that size of hurricane is related to temperature of water but I don't know if there are any matematical formulas exist which can help me?

 

Secondary, I have to know something about huriccane path (routes). Do them move from higher pressure areas tolower?

 

Greetings

    Thanks! It should be helpful. I did not mention that this simulation shuld be simple but the basic phisics laws have to be preserved. What we need to know before implementation is:

     

    1. How to calculate radius of hurricane (and dependences between radius, pressure and water temperature)

    2. What calculate first?

    3. It is small student project, we have less than 2 weeks that's why we try to avoid such complicated formulas like in article, you have presented.

     

    Look at that:

    We have here simple picture which presents how wind and pressure behave in cyclon. We thought, we could use it to write a simple matematical functions to calculate wind and pressure having a radius. But still we need to relate wind and pressure. If, we have a radius, we will can calculate wind and pressure (but we still have to match a scale, calculate minimal/maximal wind and pressure). Basic relations
