Abstract

The number of tropical cyclones observed in the Australian region during a single cyclone season has ranged from one to nineteen since 1909. Previous studies, using limited data sets, have suggested that interannual variations in the number of cyclones are related to the Southern Oscillation and that an index of the Southern Oscillation can be used to predict the number of cyclones expected in the coming season. This study uses a 74 year time series of tropical cyclone numbers, from the 1909-10 season to the 1982/83 season to confirm this. -from Author
