Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) Storm Wallets

Metadata Updated: May 31, 2016

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) is responsible for typhoon forecasts and warnings for the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean basins. After each storm, the JTWC stores its records in accordion-style folders, or "wallets". Facing prohibitive storage costs and space constraints for historical wallets, the JTWC contacted CDMP to inquire about storage of this one-of-a-kind data. There are 1,523 wallets in the collection, spanning four cyclone basins in the period 1966-1994. NCDC received these wallets in August of 2009, and ingested them into their physical archives. Around 70 wallets were scanned and are available for download.
