Changes in the Characteristics of Typhoons Crossing the Island of Taiwan
Blelloch, Jack W.
MetadataShow full item record
Twenty-two typhoons (1960-72) are examined to determine the effect of Taiwan on the intensity and movement of tropical cyclones crossing the island. The results show an average intensity (maicimum surface wind) decrease of over 403 and a distinct northward deflection as the storms approach the island with a southward deflection after passage. Forecast rules for typhoons approaching or crossing Taiwan are presented.
