Life history of the 12 May 1979 tropical cyclone as seen by TIROS - N satellite
The evolution and dissipation of a tropical cyclone over the Bay of Bengal as seen by the TIROS-N environmental satellite is described. The tropical cyclone crossed the east coast of India on 12 May, 1979 and caused extensive property damage. The TIROS-N direct readout images received by ground stations of the India Meteorological Department enabled the Meteorological Service to issue advance storm warnings and save many lives. The usefulness of good quality satellite images for tracking the tropical cyclones over the data sparse area like Bay of Bengal is emphasized in this article.
