FEEDBACK HOME TCP WMO
Development of the Tropical Cyclone Forecaster Website was under the WMO TCP Sub-Project No. 24 which was established in response to a recommendation from IWTC-IV (Haikou, Hainan, China, 1998) and IWTC-V (Cairns, Australia, 2002).
The Purpose or Objective of the Web site was to provide a plaform that will serve as a source that tropical cyclone forecasters can access to obtain forecasting tools concerning tropical cyclone development, motion, intensification, wind distribution, and analysis using both conventional data sources and remote sensing sources. It will contain techniques and best practices from tropical cyclone forecast centers that could be adapted by other forecast centers or National Meteorological Centers.
In this section, you will find list of past, present and future TCP training events (including link to available documentation), and available TC RSMC Training Documentations as well as some links to new techniques, tools and case studies, e.g. some e-material and presentations in RSMC Miami.
In addition, a web based training by MetEd can be accessed.
You will find on these pages WMO Technical Reports and Publications, including the Global Guide to Tropical Cyclone Forecasting.
The purpose of operational plans/manuals are to enhance the cooperative efforts of Members within WMO regions in carrying out their role in the preparation and issuance of forecasts, advisories and warnings of all tropical cyclones affecting their forecast area of responsibility. Tropical Cyclone advisories issued by Regional Specialized Meteorological Centres with activity specialization in tropical cyclone analysis, tracking and forecasting are explained and examples provided.
The Global Guide to Tropical Cyclone Forecasting is a collection of materials from the IWTC-I and IWTC-II to complement the theoretical and descriptive content of the “Global view of Tropical Cyclones.” It also serves as a valuable forecast reference and is planned to undergo an evolutionary revision.
You may find operational tropical cyclone advisories and warning information from WMO Severe Weather Information Centre.
From here, you may find some current observational data. This section includes links to sites providing observational data and their derivatives, and NWP model products etc. Please note that some may be experimental products. Please also note that some links may be password protected.
You find TC Summary Reports and/or Best Track Data from here
An international email discussion group can be joined by going there for severe weather occurrences like tropical cyclones.
