Abstract

An estimation of Tropical Cycione (TC) activities over the Day of Bengal(BOB) in terms of frequency and cyclone days (CD) using regression equations employing Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) over the Indian Ocean region (50° E - 1200 E and 30 0 S - 30 0 N) based on period of 1950 - 2001 is being attempted in this paper The set of equations are formulated for the months of May, October and November, as they are the months with maximum frequencies over BOB. The performance of these equations is found to be 60 to 70 in the case of frequency estimation while 60 in the case of CD.
