A multiple linear regression wind radii model developed in the North Atlantic basin based on the deviation angle variance technique was applied in the Australian region. The model was used to improve the historic database of 34-, 50- and 64-kt tropical cyclone (TC) wind radii estimates (R34, R50, and R64) for 374 TCs during the geostationary satellite era. Results during 2010-2016 produced quadrant mean absolute errors ranging between 49 and 61 km for the 34-kt radii, between 24 and 37 km for the 50-kt radii and between 20 and 25 km for the 64-kt radii.
