SUMMARY

The 2004 & 2005 Atlantic hurricane seasons demonstrated the vulnerability of the U.S. mainland to landfalling tropical cyclones. Economic losses to landfalling hurricanes on the U.S. mainland have roughly doubled each decade from 1900 to 2005. In addition, there were dangerous typhoons in the western Pacific & tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean, showing that the tropical cyclone threat to populations & the environment, economic well-being, military operations, & U.S. interests abroad is still with us & global in extent. This plan identifies areas within the field of hurricane related sciences that need research & focuses on transferring this research into operations. Illustrations.Lautenbacher, Conrad C. is the author of 'Interagency Strategic Research Plan for Tropical Cyclones : The Way Ahead', published 2007 under ISBN 9781422312797 and ISBN 1422312798.
