SPSD Tropical Program Products:

Satellite Imagery
Sample Floater Image Static and animated imagery of tropical disturbances, tropical cyclones and areas of interest. Users have the ability to overlay a variety of data on animated imagery loops of tropical storms.

eTRaP
Sample eTrap Graphic The eTRaP is a simple ensemble that allows for the generation of probabilistic forecasts of rainfall in addition to deterministic rainfall totals.


Dvorak Classifications
Sample Dvorak Image Subjective position and intensity estimates of tropical disturbances and cyclones across the globe using the internationally recognized Dvorak technique.

ATCF Format

Bulletins
Sample Bulletin Image Text bulletins disseminated by 0400Z, 1000Z, 1600Z, and 2200Z describing the position and intensity estimates for tropical disturbances and tropical cyclones in the Eastern and Southern Hemispheres.

MTCSWA
Sample MTCSWA Graphic MTCSWA combines information from several data sources to create a mid-level wind analysis which is then adjusted to the surface. Eight products are displayed, most notably an inner core scale surface wind analysis.


TCFP
Sample TCFP Graphic The Tropical Cyclone Formation Probability Product provides an estimate of the probability of tropical cyclone formation within the next 24 hours in 1 by 1 degree latitude/longitude areas from 45S to 45N and 0 to 360E.

ADT
Sample ADT Graphic The ADT provides an automated, objectively-derived estimate of the tropical cyclone location and intensity using the latest official forecast bulletins from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) and from Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers (RSMC), such as the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC).



Disclaimer:

Users are reminded that posted SPSD position and intensity estimates are based on the application of the Dvorak technique to satellite imagery. Official determinations of systems' status, location and intensity are provided by the Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers listed above.
