Manoa Technologies (SOEST) showed tropical cyclone activity shifted towards the poles in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

Scientists took data on character changecyclones since 1982. It was in this year that climate change began to be measured using satellite data. Based on this block of information, the researchers estimated the frequency and location of storms, as well as their speed.

As a result, it became clear that cyclones became more active. This is attributed to natural variations as well as climate change.

Researchers continue to study trends and relationships between climate and tropical cyclones.
