Boundary Layer in Tropical Cyclones

#1 Postby Chris90 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:46 pm

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if a Pro-Met or a knowledgeable amateur could give me an explanation on the boundary layer in tropical cyclones? I've tried to do some research on Google, but it is mainly giving me scholarly articles and I was hoping for a more basic explanation of the boundary layer before I get into all that.
I'm particularly curious if the boundary layer is what people are talking about when they discuss the stronger winds aloft in a cyclone mixing down to the surface? Does the boundary layer have something to do with this? Is it something to do with the boundary layer reaching a greater height therefore pulling stronger winds higher up down to the surface, or is the boundary layer at a fixed height in a storm? Or does the boundary layer have nothing to do with the winds mixing down?
I'm fairly clueless on the boundary layer so any explanation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I can't stand the rain..
