Some aspects of accuracy of radar/satellite fixes of tropical cyclone over Bay of Bengal
Keywords:Radar fixes, Radar networks
Consequent to installation of 10 cyclone detection radars and availability of INSAT observations availability of fixes* of cyclones by two or more radars and satellite has become a common feature during tracking of cyclones. Generally these fixes differ from each other to some extent. The paper presents a study of tracks of four cyclones in Bay of Bengal as determined by coastal radars and satellite. It is seen that satellite fix is generally closer to coast as compared to radar fix. Amongst radar fixes, the fix of radar closest to the storm may be considered as best fix of the system.
