Summary
Abstract: 1998 Atlantic Tropical Storms: Views from the NOAA Satellites is a technical report produced by, and available from, the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This annual report is a preliminary summary of the 1998 Atlantic Hurricane season. It provides a synopsis of each named tropical storm, using textual information obtained from the National Hurricane Center's Summary of the 1998 Atlantic Season report and the National Weather Service's Preliminary Storm Data reports. Selected satellite and doppler radar imagery were used for key times of each storm. The tables of station precipitation data were created from NWS cooperative and airport stations. The numbers for deaths and damages were obtained from several sources including the NHC Preliminary Hurricane Reports, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and state emergency management agencies. These numbers are subject to revision. The satellite images within this report along with many more tropical storm images are on-line under the Satellite Imagery section at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/satellite.html.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
