Short summary
This study investigated the effects of air–sea interaction on the life cycle of Hurricane Arthur (2014) that traversed through the North Atlantic Ocean. The study explored the role of ocean surface waves and sea-spray-mediated heat and momentum fluxes on the structure and intensity of the tropical cyclone. The sea spray fluxes were modelled using wave energy dissipation from a wave model, which reduced the amount of spray fluxes as compared to the empirical spray source generation function.
