Future cyclone frequency less than thought

Recently, many studies have used high-resolution models to address future changes in tropical cyclone activity due to climate change. In a new study, researchers found model biases in the present-day simulation that have been ignored in other studies when estimating projected future changes.

Results from this study indicate marked decreases in projected tropical cyclone frequency in the basins of the Southern Hemisphere, the Bay of Bengal, western North Pacific Ocean, eastern North Pacific, and the Caribbean Sea. They found increases in the Arabian Sea and the subtropical central Pacific Ocean.
