Comprehensive climatology of hurricanes for eastern Canada

In contrast to meteorology, which looks at current and short-term future weather, climatology is the study of weather that has already happened. Climatology looks at the frequency and trends of weather systems over years, decades, centuries and millennia.

Hurricane climatology is the study of past tropical cyclones and is aimed at improving our understanding of how these storms have affected people in the past. The Climatology of Hurricanes for Eastern Canada is a living, growing source of historical information about how tropical cyclones such as hurricanes and tropical storms have affected eastern Canada and Canadian waters. This information will in turn help people protect themselves and their property from these storms in the future.
