Abstract : Six-hourly observations containing 18 parameters of tropical storms and typhoons in the western north Pacific Ocean during the period 1960 through 1969 were examined. The data were composited into four periods: before and after maximum intensity for East-West moving storms, and before and after recurvature for recurving storms. Monthly and seasonal variations of tropical cyclone intensity, speed of movement and size were examined. Correlation coefficients of the 18 tropical storm and typhoon parameters were computed for each of the four composited periods of study. (Author)
