1946-2010: Worldwide Hurricane Activity

WEBHurricaneActivity1946-2010.pdf

Synopsis and invited feedback

Peer review is important and acquiring competent reviewers is becoming a major problem for the journals today so I will be very happy to include constructive comment (positive or negative) with acknowledgement. If I am not competent to judge your commentary I will try and find somebody who is.

If you would like to provide feedback just e-mail me here.

Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
This is an update of the paper I wrote a year ago showing that Hurricane Data did not support the widely advertised view that hurricanes are getting stronger.

Here I update to the period 1946-2010. The previous conclusions are unchanged with 2010 being a particularly quiet year continuing an apparent decline in activity. World-wide, the data shows a distinct convex upwards trend with an approximate half-period of around 35 years and a peak of activity in the mid-1990s. Its really interesting and if this is indicative of the IPCC's quoted recent rising trend, I clearly need to change my optician.

The data is taken directly from the Unisys site shown below. All I have done is graph various bits of it so my grateful thanks to them.

In the interests of open pedagogic research, I have also included a link below to the updated spreadsheet so you can plot and analyse it yourselves.
