The Southern Hemisphere Tropical Cyclone Data Portal [opens in new window]
The Southern Hemisphere Tropical Cyclone Data Portal improves knowledge of past tropical cyclone activity in the Pacific Islands and Timor-Leste by plotting tracks of cyclones in the South Pacific from 1969.
The tool allows users to see the characteristics and paths of past tropical cyclone events. Meteorologists and stakeholders can use this tool to analyse the tracks of historical tropical cyclones and relate them to the impact on lives and infrastructure recorded on the ground.
Relationship to other tools:
The Southern Hemisphere Tropical Cyclone Data Portal and the Pacific Climate Change Data Portal are connected in the sense that daily rainfall data from the Pacific Climate Change Data Portal could be used to examine the impacts of a particular tropical cyclone that is available via the Tropical Cyclone Data Portal.
Who can use it:
This tool is able to be used by the public to examine the impacts of past tropical cyclones.
