1. Introduction This summary of the tropical cyclones (TC) of the Eastern Hemisphere during 1995 was compiled from the archives of the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Guam (hereafter, JTWC). The JTWC was activated on 1 May 1959 as the Fleet Weather Central/Joint Typhoon Warning Center. It is a joint navy–air force activity. Located atop Nimitz Hill, Guam, the JTWC has a forecast area of responsibility (AOR) that extends from the 180° meridian westward to the coast of Africa, in

Meteorological Satellite, and hourly DD numbers were calculated for all of the typhoons of 1996. The DD numbers are experimental. In some cases, the DD numbers differ substantially from the warning intensity and also from the subjectively determined T numbers. The output of the DD algorithm often undergoes rapid and large fluctuations. The JTWC relies almost exclusively on satellite imagery to diagnose TC intensity, and the DD numbers may lead to modifications in the current subjective methods of
