This page is devoted to research concerning Tropical Cyclones in the Southwest Pacific – for the purposes of this research, the area of study is south of equator to about 40° South and stretches from near French Polynesia around 120° West and then west to the Gulf of Carpentaria in Australia at 135° East longitude. This research is in fulfillment of a PhD course of study via Auckland University’s School of Environment. This research has begun with the creation of a South Pacific Enhanced Archive of Tropical Cyclones (SPEArTC) which is freely available but for the purposes of tracking usage and being able to contact users when changes occur, I respectfully request that you please register for this dataset in the Guestbook section of this page.
SPEArTC dataset has been updated as of September 2012 to incorporate the 2010/11 season data.
