     The track coordinates, central pressure and 1-minute average
  maximum sustained wind values were obtained from the operational
  forecast/advisories issued by the Tropical Prediction Center/National
  Hurricane Center located in Miami, Florida.   A 1-minute averaging
  period is the standard used by all U. S. civilian and military
  warning services for tropical cyclone warnings.

Note #1: Irene was upgraded to a tropical storm in the 07/1500 UTC
advisory based on a QuikScat pass at 0849 UTC which had shown a few
40-kt vectors.    Since the deep convection and organization had
diminished somewhat by 1500 UTC, the initial advisory MSW was estimated
at 35 kts.

Note #2: The CP of 991 mb was based on a 12/2300 UTC pressure report of
995.9 mb from Buoy 41927 which was located 30 nm northeast of the center.

Note #1: The CP of Katrina continued to fall after the peak MSW of
150 kts was reported, but the MSW was adjusted downward slightly to
145 kts in the 28/2100 UTC advisory.  This was based upon findings from
the Stepped-Frequency Microwave Radiometer on board a NOAA research
aircraft which suggested that the peak 700-mb FLW to surface MSW ratio
was not as large as the typical 90% used for most hurricanes.   So it
seems likely that the peak MSW for Katrina may be set at 145 kts instead
of 150 kts.

Note #2: The actual final HPC advisory on Katrina's remnants was at
0300 UTC on 1 September, but no coordinates were given as the remnant
surface low-pressure center had been absorbed by a nearby extratropical
LOW.

                        ----------------------

     The track coordinates, central pressure and 1-minute average
  maximum sustained wind values were obtained from the operational
  forecast/advisories issued by the Tropical Prediction Center/National
  Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, for locations east of longitude
  140W, and from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu,
  Hawaii, for locations west of longitude 140W.  A 1-minute averaging
  period is the standard used by all U. S. civilian and military
  warning services for tropical cyclone warnings.

NORTHWEST PACIFIC (NWP) - North Pacific Ocean West of Longitude 180


                        Sources of Information
                        ----------------------

     The track coordinates and 1-minute average maximum sustained wind
  values in general were taken from operational warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The central pressure and 10-minute
  average maximum sustained wind estimates for most systems were obtained
  from warnings issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA), which
  is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional Specialised Meteor-
  ological Centre for the basin.  In a few instances, information from
  warnings issued by other Asian warning centers may have been utilized.
  The center position coordinates from JMA and other centers were com-
  pared with those from JTWC and annotations made in the Remarks column
  when the differences in general amounted to 40-50 nm or more.

     Michael V. Padua of Naga City in the Philippines, owner of the
  Typhoon 2000 website, sends me cyclone tracks based upon warnings
  issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the Philippines'
  Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration
  (PAGASA).  Also, Huang Chunliang of Fuzhou City, China, sends me
  each month a table comparing the maximum intensities assigned to each
  cyclone from all the applicable warning centers in the Northwest
  Pacific basin.  A very special thanks to Michael and Chunliang for
  the assistance they so reliably provide.

     Regarding the MSW comparison tables, Huang Chunliang has often
  stated:  "In the title line the storm grade has been adopted based on
  the classification of the most 'radical' TCWC.   Also, all the storm
  names/numbers available to me have been referenced.   In addition, the
  starting date points to the one when the system was initially upgraded
  to TD status by whatever TCWC, while the ending date represents the one
  when the storm was last ranked as a TD by whatever TCWC."

Note 1: NMCC (Beijing), GRMC (Guangzhou), CWBT (Taipei), SMG (Macao),
JMA (Tokyo) & TMD (Bangkok) all classified the system as a TD, while
JTWC (Honolulu) & HKO (Hong Kong) ranked it as a tropical disturbance/
LPA only.

Note 2 (+): From 09/1200Z through 10/1800Z, both NMCC and GRMC kept 
forecasting the TD to intensify into a TS, which never materialized
though.

Note 3 (*): CWB normally doesn't make any wind estimation for tropical 
depressions.

Note 1(*): HKO never issued any real-time warnings on this typhoon, which
remained outside their AOR throughout its life.

Note 2(#): The MSW is merely the "peak" value based on the limited 
warnings released only when the storm was travelling within the
restricted AOR, so it could not have been the real peak.

             !!!!!!  IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ  !!!!!!

     To repeat the caveat which is included in the Author's Note
  at the end of the cyclone summaries--the tropical cyclone tracks
  I prepare are based upon the operational warnings/advisories/
  advices/bulletins which are issued by the various tropical cyclone
  warning agencies around the world.   Users of these tracks should
  be aware that they are preliminary and subject to revision during
  post-seasonal analyses of the cyclones by the forecasters and
  analysts at the several warning centers.

     For the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific basins, official tropical
  cyclone reports and "best tracks" can be found at the website of
  the Tropical Prediction Center/National Hurricane Center:

     http://www.nhc.noaa.gov>

     The Joint Typhoon Warning Center's website contains links to their
  Annual Tropical Cyclone Reports which include that agency's "best
  tracks" for tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific basin, the
  North Indian Ocean, and the Southern Hemisphere:

     http://199.10.200.33/jtwc.html>


  SPECIAL NOTE:  Back issues of the global tropical cyclone summaries
  and monthly cyclone track files can be obtained at the following
