Speed of Tropical Storms and Typhoons After Recurvature in the Western North Pacific Ocean
Burroughs, Lawrence D.
MetadataShow full item record
Twenty-five years of tropical cyclone data (1945-69) for the western North Pacific were evaluated to determine the speed-of-movement characteristics of tropical storms and typhoons following recurvat~re. The results show that the acceleration of storms following recurvature is dependent on the meteorolog1cal characteristics of the storm, and the surrounding synoptic environment which is a function of the time of the year. Forecast equations derived by linear regression techniques are presented for the speed of movement of tropical cyclones 36 hr after recurvature.
