of moisture and temperature in the atmosphere determines the amount of CAPE and is influenced by several processes, especially in the atmospheric boundary layer. Soil type, land use, orography, and elevation are important because they define properties of the interaction between the land surface and the atmosphere. Several processes contribute to create variability in a convective boundary layer. The heating of surfaces with different heat conduction properties by the sun causes turbulent eddies

present regions of enhanced cyclone track density and regions of cyclone genesis or lysis (e.g., Whitaker and Horn 1984 ; Hoskins and Hodges 2002 ; Wernli and Schwierz 2006 ). Although using different methods of cyclone identification and tracking, they all found some pronounced features such as the Atlantic and the Pacific storm tracks and a secondary maximum of cyclone frequency over the Gulf of Genoa. Several climatologies also consider other cyclone characteristics such as cyclone size
