Figure 2 The average "along track" SST
cooling observed for 23 Atlantic hurricanes between 1975-2002 (red
line). In this diagram Delta SST = ambient SST ahead of the storm
minus inner-core SST. Standard deviation estimates (vertical blue
lines) are also given. Delta SST is measured in °C and distance
is measured in degrees latitude (111 km, 60 nmi) from the storm center.
Negative radial distance indicates observations that were obtained in
either the right rear or left rear quadrant of the storm.
