     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.

                        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).  A special thanks to Michael for his efforts.

Note:  The above track was provided by Karl Hoarau.  Even though JTWC and
AFWA were assigning Dvorak intensity estimates implying the existence of
a tropical depression or even a tropical storm after 07/0600 UTC, I chose
not to attempt to extend the track beyond the time frame of Karl’s 
analysis.   My purpose is primarily to simply document the existence of 
this system.

80 kts (10-min avg) from 12/1200 through 16/0000 UTC when the cyclone

Note: The maximum intensity assigned by PAGASA for Typhoon Milenyo was
75 kts (10-min avg) at 29/0600 UTC when the cyclone was exiting that
agency's AOR.  During the time that the typhoon was transiting the
Philippines the peak estimated MSW was 70 kts.  Interestingly, PAGASA
downgraded Milenyo/Xangsane to a 60-kt tropical storm for a 12-hour
period at 28/0000 UTC, at which time JTWC and JMA were reporting peak
winds of 105 kts (1-min avg) and 70 kts (10-min avg), respectively.

NORTH INDIAN OCEAN (NIO) - Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea

                        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.   Occasionally some information may
  have been gleaned from the daily tropical weather outlooks and other
  bulletins issued by the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), which
  is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional Specialised Meteor-
  ological Centre for the basin.
 
     The reported maximum sustained winds are based on a 1-minute
  averaging period, which is used by all U. S. civilian and military
  weather services for tropical cyclone warnings.     For synoptic
  observations in the North Indian Ocean region, both 10-minute and
  3-minute average winds are employed, but IMD makes no attempt to
  modify the Dvorak scale for estimating tropical cyclone intensity;
  hence, a 1-minute average MSW is implied.

Note: Dvorak ratings from AFWA were at T4.5/4.5 for several hours on the
22nd, and SAB was at T4.5/4.5 at 22/1430 UTC.    Also, there was an 
estimate from JTWC at T4.0/4.0 at 22/1730 UTC, so it is very possible
that Mukda was at hurricane intensity on 22 September.  The India
Meteorological Department classified Mukda as a 'severe cyclonic storm'
at its peak, implying peak winds between 48 and 63 kts.  JTWC issued
12-hourly warnings for this cyclone.  I filled in the missing points
with information gleaned from the JTWC and AFWA satellite bulletins.

Note: The AFWA Dvorak rating of T3.5/3.5 at 28/1800 UTC suggests that the
system may have been slightly stronger than analyzed by JTWC.  The
highest classification assigned this system by the IMD was 'depression',
implying peak winds of 25-29 kts.  JTWC isused only 3 warnings for
TC-05B at 12-hourly intervals.  Information for the missing data poitns
and post-warning period (after 29/1200 UTC) was gleaned from the JTWC
and AFWA satellite bulletins.

  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:
