Future Work

If there is sufficient interest and support for this atlas of extratropical cyclone characteristics future plans for the atlas may include:

  • Statistical information on the standard deviation of all composite fields.

  • Extratropical cyclones composited for monthly, seasonal and climatological means.

  • Extratropical cyclones composited for different regions, e.g. Pacific Ocean.

  • Composites of tropical cyclone characteristics.

  • Additional composites of extra fields of interest, e.g. PV, precipitation.

  • Composites of cyclones relative to different measures of intensity, e.g. maximum wind speed/ precipitation.

  • Composites of cyclones centred on different features, e.g. the cold front.
