HurreconR: Models Hurricane Wind Speed, Wind Direction, and Wind Damage
The HURRECON model estimates wind speed, wind direction, enhanced
Fujita scale wind damage, and duration of EF0 to EF5 winds as a function
of hurricane location and maximum sustained wind speed. Results may be
generated for a single site or an entire region. Hurricane track and
intensity data may be imported directly from the US National Hurricane
Center's HURDAT2 database. For details on the original version of the
model written in Borland Pascal, see: Boose, Chamberlin, and Foster (2001)
<doi:10.1890/0012-9615(2001)071[0027:LARIOH]2.0.CO;2> and Boose, Serrano,
and Foster (2004) <doi:10.1890/02-4057>.
