Abstract

A statistical résumé of the season is presented, and a tentative climatology is proposed, based on 5 yr of operational satellite coverage. Basic data were increased through more reconnaissance flights and satellite pictures. No direct storm casualties or damage from storm winds or seas were reported. Casualties and damage resulting from the Arizona flood diaster were indirectly related to tropical storm Norma. The chronicle of hurricanes and tropical storms deals mainly with the relationship of the data to hurricane intensity and to physical processes within the various tropical cyclones.
