  • Abstract In this paper the climatology and structure of, and possible reasons for, tropical cyclones of different sizes are examined. The climatology of tropical cyclone sizes confirms that tropical cyclones of the western North Pacific are characteristically twice as large as their Atlantic counterparts, and also reveals that the typical size of tropical cyclones varies seasonally and regionally and is only weakly correlated with cyclone intensity (maximum surface wind or minimum surface… CONTINUE READING
