Abstract

[Extract] Tropical cyclones (also known as hurricanes and typhoons) occur in seven ocean basins of the world. Northern Australia is affected each year between November and May by tropical cyclones forming in two of these: the southwest Pacific and southeast Indian basins. Tropical Cyclones act as a major ecological drivers in northern Australia. Both patterns and processes are regularly affected in rainforest and savanna ecosystems, especially near the coast. However, our northern arid ecosystems occasionally feel the physical effects of cyclones as they move inland and form into major rain depressions.
