The years 1995 to 2000 experienced the highest level of North Atlantic hurricane activity in the reliable record. Compared with the generally low activity of the previous 24 years (1971 to 1994), the past 6 years have seen a doubling of overall activity for the whole basin, a 2.5-fold increase in major hurricanes (>/=50 meters per second), and a fivefold(More)
The 1995 Atlantic hurricane season was a year of near-record hurricane activity with a total of 19 named storms (average is 9.3 for the base period 1950–90) and 11 hurricanes (average is 5.8), which persisted for a total of 121 named storm days (average is 46.6) and 60 hurricane days (average is 23.9), respectively. There were five intense (or major)(More)
Following the appearance of inflorescence malformations on mango trees in some orchards in Israel, a survey was carried out of the presence of Eriophyid mites on mango, and their possible effect on inflorescence malformation was studied. Two Eriophyid species were recorded for the first time from this area. One of them,Erio-phyes mangiferae, associated with(More)
1. Overview The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season broke many tropical cyclone records. The season featured a record 27 tropical storms (TS), a record 15 hurricanes (H), a record four category-5 hurricanes, a record estimated Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) index (Bell et al. 2000) of 285% of the median (Fig. 1), and an ACE contribution of 131% of the median(More)
The 2004 Atlantic hurricane season had well above-normal activity, with 15 named storms, 9 hurricanes (H), and 6 major hurricanes [MH, defined as categories 3-5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, Simpson (1974)]. Nine of these systems struck the continental United States, three as tropical storms (Bonnie, Hermine, and Matthew) and six as hurricanes (Alex,(More)
The effect of a 24-h exposure of adults ofCarpophilus hemipterus to artificial diets treated on the surface with different concentrations of benzoylphenylureas, on the hatchability of eggs laid during the subsequent 14 days, was investigated. The order of persistence of sterilization at 5 ppm was chlorfluazuron (IKI-7899), 12 days > XRD-473, 10 days >(More)
The 2008 Atlantic hurricane season produced 16 named storms (NS), of which eight became hurricanes (H) and five became major hurricanes (MH) (Fig. 1). The 19502000 averages are 11 NS, six H, and two MH. For 2008, the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) index (Bell et al. 2000), a measure of the season’s overall activity, was 167% of the median (Fig. 2). This(More)
