Dataset summary

The dataset on this page is a cache of the dataset https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/tropical-cyclone-wind-exposure-eastern-pacific-1987-2016. It is a snapshot of the dataset as it appeared on 09 Aug 2021 16:34 GMT. The current dataset could have changed in the meantime. Attribution: Contains data retrieved from Data.gov.

These data represent modeled, historical exposure of U.S. offshore, coastal, and international waters to tropical cyclone activity within the Eastern Pacific Ocean basin (1987-2016). BOEM Outer Continental Shelf Lease Blocks were used to construct the grid by which exposure was quantified. Exposure was quantified using intersecting storm tracks, overlapping wind intensity areas, and mathematical return intervals. Symbology is based on the modeled occurrence of tropical storm force (34-knot) or greater winds per lease block. Due to the way winds were calculated differently over land and over water, the interpretation of wind exposure metrics within coastal areas should be interpreted carefully. Data represent past climatology only and do not suggest predicted future impacts or exposure.
