The Formation of Tropical Storms
Manage episode 329406310 series 3173772
Welcome to my Podcast!
In about two days’ time, it will have been exactly three years since I released the last episode of this geography Podcast…
Nevertheless… in this episode, I will be looking at part of the A-Level Geography course, Hazardous Environments, specifically tropical storms and how they are formed.
Known as hurricanes in the North Atlantic, cyclones in the Indian Ocean and Typhoons in the East Pacific, Tropical Storms are large-scale atmospheric disturbances characterised by having low pressure (below 920 millibars), strong winds and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms around a central cycle eye.
