Tropical Storms Tracks DatabaseEntry ID: UAH_ITSC_STORMS
Abstract: The storm tracks database is derived from the storm data published by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). This web page provides a convenient user interface for casually browsing storm information, including location, category, and wind speed. Information about the underlying services which provide this information may be found here. These services are available to anyone.
The bulk of the ... information in this database is derived from the storm data provided annually by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in HURDAT format. The HURDAT file contains storms from 1851 to the previous storm season, but is not updated during the current storm season.
We also download and process data for ongoing storms during storm season (roughly April to January). These data are constantly updated in the database while there are active storms.
Storm information may be browsed in two ways, using the "quick" search, or the "advanced" search which allows more detailed specification of search criteria.
