    The article reports on the projection made by Hiroyuki Murakami of the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawaii and his colleagues that tropical cyclones in the North Indian Ocean will likely occur during the peak monsoon season later in 2012, as the climate grow warmer.

    The authors study the NCEP–NCAR reanalysis temperature records and find that surface daily mean temperature cools rapidly and warms gradually at the midlatitudes (around 40°N and 40°S). This “asymmetry” is partially related to the midlatitude cyclone activity, in which...

    Projections of the potential impacts of global warming on regional tropical cyclone activity are challenging owing to multiple sources of uncertainty in model physical schemes and different assumptions for future sea surface temperatures. A key factor in projecting climate change is to derive...
