  title={Is Tropical Cyclone Intensity Guidance Improving ?},
  author={Mark DeMaria and Charles R. Sampson and John A Knaff and Kate Musgrave},
T ropical cyclone (TC) intensity is defined as the 1-min maximum surface (10 m) wind by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC), and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). TC intensity is measured in terms of knots (kt; 1 kt = 0.514 m s–1), so we will use knots, the native unit, for the remainder of the paper. These operational TC forecast centers monitor the location and intensities of all active TCs in their respective areas of responsibility.1 The… CONTINUE READING
