Tropical Cyclone Heat Potential

Catalog Info

Tropical cyclone heat potential (TCHP), an important parameter for cyclone studies, is estimated on daily basis from 1998 to present with a one week time delay. The data used to estimate this parameter are (a) sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) from the available altimeters, (b) sea surface temperature (SST) from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager (TMI) and the climatological values of the depth of the 26oC isotherm (D26). The procedure documented by Ali et al. (2012: IEEE GRSL) is followed in the estimation of TCHP.
