COMMENT is not only a critical prediction problem, but one of Tropical Cyclone communicating the consequences of changes to both the public and private interests. Destructive Potential by Kinetic energy itself is arguably the least conser- vative property of any severe storm, exhibiting large Integrated Kinetic Energy variations from point to point, both in space and time, especially in urban coastal areas. The computation —ROBER T SIMPSON Former Director, NH C (Ret.) of kinetic energy from immediately available obser- Washington, DC vational sources and its spatial integration is time consuming (according to the above-mentioned paper, —HERBERT SAFFIR there is a time lag of 6 hours), yielding numerical Saffir Consulting Engineers, results that must be adjusted using arbitrarily derived Coral Gables, Florida coefficients of questionable validity when applied universally. These considerations raise serious questions about the applicability of such a scale to the owell and Reinholds (2007) summary and brief time-sensitive operational requirements of hurricane discussion of several proposed scale designs as warnings and evacuations, especially when the new suitable alternatives to the Saffir-Simpson (SS) scale does not take into account the thermodynamic scale, defining damage potentials in hurricanes, is contribution to sudden intensity changes that this a useful contribution.
