Tropical Cyclones in the Southwest Indian Ocean

Information for weather forecasters and tropical meteorologists

A selection of stimulating videos, animations, audio and mapping of tropical cyclones.  These activities share expert analysis on recent tropical cyclones (TCs) and our ability to forecast them in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models.

We aim to interest, inform and update on:

  • Historical cyclones
  • Madden-Julian Oscillation & TCs
  • Errors, bias & uncertainty in forecasting
  • Recent & upcoming developments

All videos, animations and audio have a full transcription text in English, Portuguese and French.

The activities presented here are open resources for the meteorological community and engaged forecast users, especially those dealing with impacts of tropical cyclones.
