In meteorology, a cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth. This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate anti-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere andclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. Most large-scale...
Location: Tropical cyclones occur in the northern part of Australia, around the periphery, or in the tropics. The areas most affected by tropical cyclones are Queensland and Western Australia, with New South Wales being one of the states rarely affected. The season for tropical cyclones in the southern...
Description of Tropical Cyclones
A tropical cyclone is a particular type of low pressure system that occurs in the summer months near northern Australia and composes over warm tropical waters. Cyclones can also be defined as gale force winds and heftily ponderous rain that can be...
Cyclone is one of the natural calamities that hits the equatorial countries. It comes without notice and catches us by surprise. Never it has been possible to check the wrath of cyclone it is God's fury and it comes to carry out his decree.
Cyclone occurs in a hot country and in...

The possible increase in cyclone frequency in the Bay of Bengal, lying south of Bangladesh, due to climate change is looked at by analyzing the cyclone data for 119 yr.

We need to remember that we can not stop the geologic process (you can’t stop a volcano from erupting, or a cyclone from forming), we also can not stop the population from growing.
We can only attempt to reduce the hazard to life and property.
To combat the increasing...

This forces heavier particles to the outer edges, while lighter particles remain in the...

An essay on cyclone
A cyclone is a very violent storm. It never comes alone. Heavy showers of rain, thunder and lightning are its companions. When a cyclone blows, it moves round and round in the form of small circles. It always changes its course when it blows. It does not move in the same direction...
very extreme weather like Mediterranean tropical cyclones are an extremely rare weather phenomenon. These systems are a subject of some debate within meteorological circles whether they closely fit the definition of tropical cyclones, subtropical cyclones, or polar lows. Their origins are typically non-tropical...
Tropical cyclone is one of the most common natural hazards in Australia. Itâ€™s also called â€˜typhoonâ€™, â€˜hurricaneâ€™, â€˜tropic stormâ€™ and so on. If you look at the climatological data for tropical cyclone, you can find out that the actual shape of a tropical...
Tropical Cyclones: Cyclone Larry
A tropical cyclone is a powerful tropical storm that forms between 5° and 20° south or north of the Equator over warm oceans. Once formed, they can last for a few days to over three weeks. They usually form over the northern areas of Australia from November-April...
Basic Natural Disaster Facts

Strength and Magnitude
tropical cyclones. In 1970 a tropical cyclone and tidal surge killed more than 450 000 people a repeat of this disaster occurred in 1991 when a cyclone hit the south east coast and delta. A 7 meter high tidal wave, whipped up by winds over 200 km/h killed 125 000 people. A tropical cyclone is a storm...

Cyclones and Anti-cyclones
There are many difference between a cyclone and an anti-cyclone. The Biggest difference is the wind pressure. A cyclone has to have a low pressure center, were as an anti-cyclone has to have a high pressure center. Another difference between an anti-cyclone and is the vortex...

Hurricanes are born over water, driven by solar energy stored in the ocean. Hurricanes, properly called tropical cyclones, can travel for weeks across the ocean, blasting islands and coastlines with fierce winds, crazy rains and wavy seas.
