Tutor description

Concentric eyewall cycles" (or "eyewall replacement cycle" ) naturally occur in intense tropical cyclones, major hurricanes (winds: 50 m/s, 100 kt, 115 mph) or Catories 3, 4, and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. As tropical cyclones reach this threshold of intensity, they usually - but not always - have an eyewall and radius of maximum winds that contract to a very small size, around 10 to 25 km [5 to 15 mi].
