ECMWF does not make any use of tropical cyclone reports from RSMCs
in the data assimilation, as is the practice at several other global prediction centers (e.g., Heming 2016).
The JMA also thanks each participating NWP center for providing the forecast data, RSMCs and TCWCs for providing the best-track data, and TIGGE for providing the global ensemble dataset, respectively.
Dates that various RSMCs or TCWCs extended their TC track forecasts from 3 to 5 days (third column) and their track forecast uncertainty display methodology [ensemble prediction system (EPS)].
For verification, we use best-track position and intensity reported by each Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) and Tropical Cyclone Warning Center (TCWC).
used best-track data from the Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) Tokyo and the Hong Kong Observatory.
(2009)], analysts must turn to geostationary satellites, microwave satellites, and sparse in situ measurements such as buoys or nearby ships; it is then that the determination of intensity becomes subject to analyst interpretation and RSMC rules.
The Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) on La Reunion serves as the official monitoring agency for TC activity within the basin.
According to advisories from the RSMC La Reunion, storm surge was estimated to be 3-4 m across these areas, which ultimately led to swamped rice fields, displaced residents, and an estimated 81 fatalities due to the storm.
