Tropical cyclones

Climate Wikience provides several ways to explore tropical cyclones.

  • Tropical cyclone tracks

    interactively nagivate using auxiliary data like wind speed or cloud properties


    Hurricane Katrina track and CFSR wind speed at 10 meters above surface, 28 of August, 2005 (the date near the hurricane peak strength)

  • Wind speed swaths (footprints) for tropical cyclones

    Use for risk assessment and other advanced studies

    Watch the interactive exploration of Hurricane Iniki wind swath using Climate Wikience. Iniki stroke Hawaii in 1992 being the 3rd costliest Pacific hurricane on history (estimated cost: $3.03 billion for 2015).
