Characteristics of Cyclogenesis over the Indian Region during 1891-2011 with Special Emphasis on Bay of Bengal vis-à-vis Arabian Sea
Long-term linear trend and decadal analysis of intense cyclonic disturbances of various categories over the global ocean basins using the latest time series helps in understanding the current climatic fluctuations of a region. It also helps to initiate a better preparedness plan having better economically viable mitigation policy adaptation (World Meteorological Organization (WMO), 2006 and 2010; Mendelsohn, 2012, etc.).
