The objective of the research was to develop methods for improved prediction of the movement of tropical cyclones in the 3-7 day time scale the improved system was to be based on the existing TYFOON andor TYFOON 72 automated programs for producing predictions out to 3 days. The work was divided into 3 tasks A survey of the 2 existing prediction models and the updating and extending of the analog historical file used by these programs in producing their predictions to determine the value of large-scale patterns in the prediction of typhoon formation and in subsequent track prediction to refine the typhoon analog predictive techniques Modified author abstract
