Global Cyclone Hazard Frequency and Distribution
Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_CYCLONE_HFD_1.0


Summary
Abstract: Global Cyclone Hazard Frequency and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid based on more than 1,600 storm tracks for the period 1 January 1980 through 31 December 2000 for the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans that were assembled and modeled at UNEP/GRID-Geneva PreView. Windspeeds around storm tracks were modeled using Holland's model (1997) to assess the grid cells likely to have been exposed to ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a means of assessing the relative distribution and frequency of global cyclone hazard.
