Cyclone frequency, distribution and intensity are changing  

Research led by Federation University’s Dr Savin Chand shows a link between decreased number of tropical cyclones and global warming – Research shows tropical cyclones have decreased alongside human-caused global warming – but don’t celebrate yet – Federation University Australia

According to the latest intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, human emissions have led to warming of tropical oceans to temperatures higher than pre-industrial levels.

This, in turn, impacts the number, intensity and location of cyclones.
