Papua New Guinea cyclone hazard

Primary tabs

A tropical cyclone wind hazard map provides, at any location, the value of a wind intensity measure (for example, maximum 1 minute sustained wind speed for tropical cyclones) that is expected to be exceeded at least once in 500 year time period. The hazard maps are developed by determining the simulated intensities at every gridded location for 10,000 realizations of next-year activity of tropical cyclone events. At each grid location, the intensities are ranked and the wind intensity of the mean return period of interest is recorded. The size of the grid is 90 arc seconds. Compiled by AIR Worldwide.
