This algorithm has two steps: 1) detection of cyclone centers and areas and 2) tracking of those features. Center detection is based on local minima in sea-level pressure (within a 200 km radius) that have a pressure gradient of at least 7.5 hPa/1000 km. The area of storms and presence of single- and multi-center cyclones are determined using last-closed isobars. Tracking is based on the nearest neighbor to a predicted cyclone propagation location. Cyclone size, intensity, propagation, and interactions (e.g., splitting and merging with other storms) are tabulated at each observation time.
