# Is there a table available for the maximum potential intensity of hurricanes?

The maximum potential intensity (MPI) is a computed quantity that often sets a maximum bound for maximum hurricane wind speed, though rarely, the wind speeds observed can exceed it. MPI is based off of the idea that hurricanes effectively work as Carnot engines. Has there been a table produced with historic MPI calculations (reanalysis or forecast based)?

Also, is there a source that calculates MPI for each model and each hurricane?

For reference, $$v_{MPI}=\sqrt{\frac{C_k(T_s-T_0)}{C_dT_0}\Delta k}=\sqrt{\frac{T_sC_k}{T_0C_d}(CAPE_s-CAPE_b)}$$ where $v_{MPI}$ is the theoretical maximum speed (MPI), $C_k$ is the surface drag coefficient of enthalpy, $C_D$ is the surface drag coefficient, $\Delta k$ is the change in enthalpy between the surface and environment, $T_s$ is the sea surface temperature, $T_0$ is the outflow temperature, $CAPE_s$ is the convective available potential energy (CAPE) from sea level and $CAPE_b$ is the CAPE of the boundary layer air.
