Bangladesh - Tropical Cyclone Event Set

An event set of 6112 tropical cyclone footprints over Bangladesh.

Two distinct sets of weather and climate data are used in the creation of this event set.
Data from low resolution climate model simulations and high-resolution downscaled reanalysis data. Each source of data is translated into a storm footprint, describing the local maximum over the duration of the event. A storm footprint is constrained in space and time so that the footprint objects may be compared regards their information content, that differs only by the represented scales.

The climate data used for the event set is based on data from the PRIMAVERA project. The PRIMAVERA project is a coordinated set of experiments designed to assess both a standard and an enhanced horizontal-resolution simulation of the atmosphere and ocean as CMIP6 candidate runs, providing state-of-art climate modelling. Eight available simulations of current climatology over the 65- year period 1950 to 2014 at 25km resolution are selected.

Eight realizations at 65 years each combined provide 520-year timeseries of contemporary climatology.

The event set is a physically realistic set of plausible events based on the climatic conditions of the period from 1950 to 2014. The simulation in each of the ensemble members has evolved independently from the others, from different initial conditions.

See the technical documentation for further details.

This data is part of the Oasis Platform for Climate and Catastrophe Risk Assessment – Asia (, a project funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI), supported by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, based on a decision of the Germany Bundestag
