NHC Publications


Data Archive | Publications

Here are details on NHC publications and how to find them:

We have begun to offer recent publications in a .pdf format for immediate download, and links to these documents will appear below as they become available.


Annual Hurricane Season Articles

NHC publishes three annual summaries of tropical cyclone activity in its area of responsibility. These include: 1) The Atlantic Hurricane Season, 2) The Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Season, and 3) Atlantic Tropical Systems. The Hurricane Season summaries include descriptions of named storms along with pertinent meteorological data and satellite imagery. The Atlantic Tropical Systems article gives a description of tropical disturbances in the Atlantic (especially tropical waves) and provides information on non-developing cyclones.

The annual summaries can be found in the following periodicals:

These journals can be found in your public library or university library, and are also available to NOAA staff via the NOAA Libraries per licensing agreements. The Monthly Weather Review and Weatherwise are found in the science section, while the Mariner's Weather Log is found in the Government Documents section under the Department of Commerce. To find a NOAA library, please visit http://www.lib.noaa.gov/docs/lib_network.html.

Atlantic Hurricane Season Summaries can be found in the Monthly Weather Review back to the 1930's, with descriptions of individual storms available back to the journal's beginnings in 1886. They are found in the other journals for a similar length of time. Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season Summaries (including those from the former Eastern Pacific Hurricane Center in Redwood City, CA) are available in the journals dating back to the early 1960's.

The Atlantic Tropical Systems article dates back to the 1970's, with a break in the publication from 1980 to 1988. It is found only in the Monthly Weather Review.
