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 January 28, 2014 to incorporate the 2013 season data.
