Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)

Comments Off on Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)

The chart at right shows the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) for every tropical cyclone formed during the season. The ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the energy of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time that existed, and of particularly intense hurricanes. The longer lasting and more intense the hurricane it meant a higher RCTs. The value of ACE is only calculated for tropical systems of 34 knots (39 mph, 63 km / h) or more tropical storms and strong.
