The Pacific Typhoon Seasons of 1884-1944 have now been reanalysed
The Pacific Typhoon Seasons of 1884-1944 have now been reanalysed.
Beginning in August 2017 and ending in February 2019, we worked on producing track maps for over 1300 tropical cyclones in the Western Pacific Ocean that occurred between 1884 and 1944.
The reanalysis catalogued:
1,364 tropical cyclones encompassing all categories, including tropical depression and tropical storm.
1,294 of these were tropical storms or stronger
786 were of typhoon strength (sustained winds of 74mph) or stronger
99 were of major typhoon strength (sustained winds of 111mph) or stronger
9 reached Category 5 equivalent (sustained winds of 157mph) or stronger
All tracks will appear on the website in due course.
