Pertinent Meteorological and Hurricane Tide Data for Hurricane Carla   [open pdf - 4MB]

"This report combines the meteorological and oceanographic data for a single storm event, Hurricane Carla [1961], providing information useful for storm surge modeling. The study presents detailed analyses of the storm track, forward speed, central pressure, and radius to maximum wind, with particular attention given to the period surrounding landfall [in Texas]. Tide gauge and high water mark data give both a time history and geographic depiction of the storm surge."
