Datasets consisting of 10,000 years of synthetic tropical cyclone tracks, generated using the Synthetic Tropical cyclOne geneRation Model (STORM) algorithm (see Bloemendaal et al, Generation of a Global Synthetic Tropical cyclone Hazard Dataset using STORM, in review). The dataset is generated using historical data from IBTrACS and resembles present-climate conditions. The data can be used to calculate tropical cyclone risk in all (coastal) regions prone to tropical cyclones.
VERSION UPDATE (30 Sept 2020): The Saffir-Simpson category thresholds were wrongly calculated in the previous version, this has now been corrected.
VERSION UPDATE (18 March 2021): The old version of STORM contained some duplicate cyclone tracks. These have now been removed.
