An analysis has been made of the changes in heat content of the surface layers (above the 26°C isotherm) for a portion of the Gulf of Mexico in order to determine the total amount of heat transferred from the sea to the air during the passage of Hurricane Betsy in September of 1965. Estimations were made, at various distances from hurricane center, of the rate at which this heat was transferred.
