2008 Pacific Hurricane Season - Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)

Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)

ACE (104kt²) (Source) — Storm:
1 18.4 Norbert 10 (1.59) Kika
2 12.1 Hernan 11 1.41 Iselle
3 11.5 Elida 12 1.38 Julio
4 10.1 Fausto 13 1.33 Cristina
5 7.68 Boris 14 1.13 Polo
6 5.68 Genevieve 15 0.830 Alma
7 5.05 Marie 16 0.613 Douglas
8 2.56 Odile 17 0.245 Karina
9 2.18 Lowell
Total: 82.1 (1.59)

The table on the right shows the ACE for each storm in the season. ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the power of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time it existed, so storms that last a long time, as well as particularly strong hurricanes, have high ACEs. ACE is only calculated for full advisories on tropical systems at or exceeding 34 knots (39 mph, 63 km/h) or tropical storm strength.

The figures in parentheses are for storms in the Central Pacific basin west of 140°W; those not in parenthesis are for the Eastern Pacific basin.

Famous quotes containing the words energy and/or accumulated:

    Parents find many different ways to work their way through the assertiveness of their two-year-olds, but seeing that assertiveness as positive energy being directed toward growth as a competent individual may open up some new possibilities.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)

    Not many appreciate the ultimate power and potential usefulness of basic knowledge accumulated by obscure, unseen investigators who, in a lifetime of intensive study, may never see any practical use for their findings but who go on seeking answers to the unknown without thought of financial or practical gain.
    Eugenie Clark (b. 1922)
