Global historical tropical cyclone and hurricane natural hazards data

By Kinetic Analysis Corp

Solution details




Our Tropical Cyclone datasets use best-track data for the requested storm as is available from IBTRaCS (or, for recent storms where there is no best-track, we use ATCF a-deck data provided by the U.S. NHC, JTWC, or CPHC) to drive in-house, advanced numerical modeling that computes the spatial distribution of maximum wind speed, winds by Saffir-Simpson categories, wave heights, storm surge inundation, and cumulative rainfall. This post-event data is provided at a 30 arcsecond (~1 km) resolution. Customized resolutions, best track data source, and data units (default is SI) are available upon request.
