  • It is shown that a large part of the variability of overall “hurricane activity” — which depends on the number of storms in a season, their duration, and their intensity — can be explained by systematic shifts in the cyclogenesis regions.

  • It is a pretty good bet, barring a hemisphere-wide rash of tropical cyclogenesis, that the period from June 1 – November 30, 2007 in the Northern Hemisphere will be the quietest TC season (in terms of ACE) since 1977 (also June-Nov).

  • The apparent eastward displacement of storm activity may have resulted from an eastward shift of tropical cyclogenesis over the 20th Century, which may be related to an eastward displacement of the extent of warmest tropical Atlantic waters P.

  • Despite what most first year MET students learn about baroclinicity, cyclogenesis and atmospheric dynamics, NASA decides that a warming planet -that is a planet with warming polar source regions- would produce more tornados.
