Summary of Information on Typhoons in 2007

2007-12-30

The 2007 typhoon season had 24 typhoons, which is a little smaller than average, and this season was a relatively inactive season. This season can be characterized by many typhoons that approached Okinawa and Honshu at their peak intensity. This is a consequence of the northward shift of the birthplace of typhoons, but this also resulted in many small typhoons with relatively short period of intensification. This season did not have any "typical" strong typhoons that form in the tropics far southeast in the Pacific, intensify rapidly, and take a few days to approach Japan. This situation may be related to La NiƱa events that has been continued since the spring of 2007. There were also cases when tropical depressions and extratropical cyclones, that were changed from typhoons, affected Japan. to be continued..
