Tropical Cyclones

 

 

 

 

Overview

Following the recommendations from IWTC-VI (San Jose, November 2006) this website was established by the WWRP/WGTMR Tropical Cyclone Panel to serve as a resource for tropical cyclone forecasters and researchers. It contains tropical cyclone forecasting tools, conventional and remote sensing data sources, historical tropical cyclone databases, training modules and other relevant information on tropical cyclones.

News

The Sixth International Workshop on Tropical Cyclones recommended that all seasonal predictions of tropical cyclone activity should be validated with a common set of metrics and reported on a central website hosted by WMO. An article by Camargo et al. in the WMO Bulletin described the progress in seasonal predictions and outlined the verification techniques. An expert team has been formed by the WGTMR's Tropical Cyclone Panel to develop a common set of metrics for statistical and dynamical seasonal forecasts and establish the policy and procedures for inclusion of forecasts on the WMO website. The expert team met 24-25 April 2008 in Boulder, CO, USA.
