Research question: Mapping storm inflow/outflow boundaries to Fibonnaci Golden Spiral

Just a mathematical modeling question: As we're finding out the low-level vorticity of the forward-flank downdraft plays an integral part in steady-state vortex maintenance (Orf), has anyone yet attempted to map radar images to the Golden Spiral?

I'd be interested to learn if there is any correlation between the positioning of RFD, inflow, and FFD, and if there is a relational model that can be derived to account for variations in state change/life cycle?
