West Pacific ACE [ edit]
For the current
2015 season, the calculated ACE index as of 06:00 UTC on October 23 is 326.4575 ACE units according to the Japan
Meteorological Agency (JMA) and 426.6875 ACE units according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. The difference in the values results from one agency reporting higher wind
speeds than the other.
The 2014 calculated ACE index based on data from JMA was 202.955. Therefore, compared to 2014, the current
JMA ACE index is already 61% higher despite two remaining months to go in the 2015 season.
Translation 2015 has seen by far the highest number of strong typhoons in recorded history
. There is a new dynamic in play and everyone should be prepared to go to extreme lengths to prevent damages to life and vessel.
