Dos Santos Mesquita, Michel ; Kvamstø, Nils Gunnar ; Sorteberg, Asgeir ; Atkinson, David E. (2008)

This paper presents climatological properties of Northern Hemisphere summer extratropical storm tracks using data extracted from an existing, relative-vorticity-based storm database. This database was constructed using the NCEPNCAR ‘Reanalysis I’ data set from 1948 to 2... View more
