Item Identification

Title: Tropical Cyclone Storm Segments within the North Atlantic Ocean and Eastern Pacific Ocean basins (1900-2016)
Status: Completed
Abstract:

These data represent a unique subset of the International Best Track Archive for Climate Stewardship (IBTrACS) data set (1900-2016). Features represent IBTrACS storm track segments that 1) are attributed to the North Atlantic or Eastern Pacific basins; 2) do not cross the International Date Line; 3) occur in or after 1900; 4) have maximum wind values above 33 knots; and 5) are attributed as extratropical, subtropical, or tropical. Furthermore, those storm segments that were attributed as tropical within the source data were modified to the appropriate storm category based on the maximum wind speed value per segment.

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is NAD 1983 (ESPG: 4269). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 787578
Description:

1. Download IBTrACS storm track data from: https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/ibtracs/index.php?name=ibtracs-data

2. Extract those features in the IBTrACS data that are: a) attributed to the North Atlantic Ocean or Eastern Pacific Ocean (NA) basin; b) occur in or after 1900; and c) have maximum wind values above 33 knots.

3. From this subset of the IBTrACS data, extract those features that are attributed as extratropical (ET), subtropical (SS), or tropical (TS).

4. Create a (storm) "Category" field. For features that are tropical storms ('TS'), modify the field value to the appropriate category, based on wind speed (see https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutsshws.php). Also designate features as 'ET', 'SS', or 'TS' accordingly.

5. Features (segments) from EPAC that crossed the International Dateline were trimmed, as these features cause issues when running the buffer tool for associated exposure model layers.
