Global Tropical and Extratropical Cyclone Climatic Atlas 2.0 CD-ROMEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00337
Abstract: Global Tropical and Extratropical Cyclone Climatic Atlas CD-ROM product is available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This single volume CD-ROM contains all global historic tropical storm track data available for five tropical storm basins. Periods of record vary for each basin, with the beginning as early as the 1870's and with 1995 as the latest year. Northern hemispheric ... extratropical storm track data are included from 1965 to 1995. Tropical track data includes time, position, storm stage (and maximum wind, central pressure when available). The user has the capability to display tracks, and track data for any basin or user-selected geographic area. The user is also able to select storm tracks passing within a user-defined radius of any point. Narratives for all tropical storms for the 1980-1995 period are included along with basin-wide tropical storm climatological statistics. This is a joint NCDC and U.S. Navy product, available in MS-DOS compatibility only.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
