SPSD Tropical Program Products:

Satellite Imagery eTRaP
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.

Tropical Cyclone Floaters
Atlantic Imagery | Pacific Imagery
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 Microwave Positions
Sample Dvorak Image Subjective position and intensity estimates of tropical disturbances and cyclones across the globe using the internationally recognized Dvorak technique.

ATCF Format
ATCF Info|ATCF Format Description
Sample Microwave Image Subjective position estimates of tropical disturbances and cyclones across the globe using a variety of microwave sensors.

Bulletins MTCSWA
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. 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 24-48HR ADT
Sample TCFP Graphic The Tropical Cyclone Formation Probability Product provides an estimate of the probability of tropical cyclone formation within the next 24to 48 hours in 1 by 1 degree latitude/longitude areas from 45S to 45N and 0 to 360E. 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 Join 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).

Outside Tropical Products:

National Hurricane Center Central Pacific Hurricane Center
Sample NHC Image The National Hurricane Center is the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) for the Atlantic Basin and is a resource for offical tropical cyclone positions, intensities and forecast tracks.

Sample CPHC Image The Central Pacific Hurricane Center is the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) for the Central Pacific Basin and is a resource for offical tropical cyclone positions, intensities and forecast tracks.


Joint Typhoon Warning Center Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers

Brazil National Institute of Meteorology* NCEP International Desk
INMET Image The Brazil National Institute of Meteorology is responsible for issuing the official warning for tropical cyclones in the South Atlantic Basin. NCEP Image NOAA's Hydrometeorological Prediction Center provides visiting scientists meteorological training with an emphasis on the operational use and application of numerical model products.

NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory
Sample OSEI Graphic High-resolution, detailed imagery of tropical cyclones as detected in remotely sensed data.

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.
