2008 Tropical Cyclone Review is available for download. This report is a compilation of recent articles on tropical cyclone catastrophe activity around the world in 2008 that have been run on GC Capital Ideas.
The 2008 Tropical Cyclone Review summarizes last year’s global tropical cyclone activity and the impact of the more significant cyclones after landfall. Tropical cyclone activity is reviewed by oceanic basin, covering those that developed in the North Atlantic, Northwest Pacific, Northeast Pacific, North Indian Ocean and Australia. This report includes estimates of the economic and insured losses sustained from each cyclone (where possible). Predictions of tropical cyclone activity for the 2009 season are given per oceanic basin when permitted by available data.
