Inthe ShanghaiAtlas   Tropical cyclones occur in the tropical regions over warm ocean water. In the North Atlantic, they are called hurricanes; in the North Pacific, they are called typhoons; and in the Indian Ocean, they are called cyclones. Hurricanes start as tropical depressions with wind speeds of / Tropical Cyclones – Climatology and Impacts in the South Pacific.

Despite many worthy observational and numerical modeling studies in recent decades, our understanding of the detailed physical processes associated with the early stages of tropical cyclone formation is still inadequate; operational forecast skill is not very ://   Climate - Climate - Formation of tropical cyclones: Tropical cyclones represent still another example of air-sea interactions.

These storm systems are known as hurricanes in the North Atlantic and eastern North Pacific and as typhoons in the western North Pacific.

The winds of such systems revolve around a centre of low pressure in an counterclockwise direction in the Northern Hemisphere and Tropical cyclone, an intense circular storm that originates over warm tropical oceans and is characterized by low atmospheric pressure, high winds, and heavy rain.

Also called typhoons and hurricanes, cyclones strike regions as far apart as the Gulf Coast of North America, northwestern Australia, and eastern :// Tropical cyclones are regarded as one of the most devastating natural calamities in the world.

They originate and intensify over warm tropical oceans. These are ferocious storms that originate over oceans in tropical areas and move over to the coastal areas causing violent winds, very   A tropical cyclone is a circular air movement that starts over the warm ocean waters in the warm part of Earth near the Equator.

Most tropical cyclones create fast winds and great rains. While some tropical cyclones stay Tropical cyclones book in the sea, others pass over land.

In consequence, although the natural vegetation may be severely damaged, tropical cyclones may have less geomorphic impact. Low coral islands, such as those that occur on atolls, have the most vulnerable physical environments of all.

In the Bay of Bengal (BoB) area, landfalling Tropical Cyclones (TCs) often produce heavy rainfall that results in coastal flooding and causes enormous loss of life and property.

After they have formed, such storms tend to intensify when passing over warmer water and weaken over colder water. The rate of condensation heating that results from the intense rainfall associated with tropical cyclones is about billion :// Tropical cyclones can persist two to three times longer than typical mid-latitude cyclones.

To help explain this behavior, we start by describing tropical cyclone structure. Figure Visible-spectrum satellite picture of Hurricane Katrina over the Gulf of Mexico, taken 28 Aug at ://:_Practical_Meteorology_(Stull.
