Short summary
Tropical cyclones are significantly influenced by the lowest part of atmosphere from sea surface to 1 km because strong winds interacting with ocean surface may provide significant energy to the storms. This work aims to understand how different wind intensity and shape may change the energy transfer. A numerical modeling technique is used to simulate the wind and energy transfer. It is found that the change in wind speed with height is particularly important in generating energy transport.
