Abstract

The empirical relationship between the maximum wind speed (MWS) of tropical storms and their characteristics pictured from satellites has been employed routinely since 1964. A large number of cases accumulated since then now enables these relationships to be put on a more firm statistical basis and revised MWS curves are presented.
