QUALITATIVE DISCUSSION OF ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE ACTIVITY FOR 2015

QUALITATIVE DISCUSSION OF ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE ACTIVITY FOR 2015

We are providing a qualitative discussion of features likely to impact the 2015 Atlantic basin hurricane season rather than a specific numbers forecast. This outlook for 2015 will give our assessment of the probability of four potential scenarios for Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity.

We have developed a new way of assessing next year’s activity in terms of two primary physical parameters:

1. the strength of the Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC)
2. the phase of ENSO

The above from the Colorado State Report released 12/11/2014.
