Usage

Parameter Type Description Example
{{{Basin}}} Mandatory A abbreviation denoting what basin is represented Atl, EPac, WPac, NIO, SHem, SWI, SPac, SAtl and Aus currently defined
{{{Year}}} Optional The year of the season, if a multiple year span is covered, use the most recent 2005
{{{Track}}} Optional The location of the track map, if present. 2005 Atlantic hurricane season map.png
{{{Track alt}}} Needed if {{{Track}}} is given Alt text for the track map, for visually impaired readers; see Wikipedia:Alternative text for images, particularly its Maps section. Tracks of about 28 tropical storms, including 15 hurricanes, cluster in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, with some scattered in the Atlantic. Seven hurricanes are major, and most of them make landfall on the U.S. Gulf coast.
{{{First storm formed}}} Mandatory Formation date (generally tropical storm-strength) of first storm (full date) Use {{start date}} {{start date|2005|06|08}}
{{{Last storm dissipated}}} Mandatory Dissipation date of last storm (full date). Use {{end date}} {{end date|2006|01|06}}
{{{Strongest storm name}}} Mandatory The name of the strongest storm(s). Wikilink if appropriate. Wilma
{{{Strongest storm pressure}}} Optional The minimum pressure of the strongest storm in mbar/hPa. Must be a number. 882
{{{Strongest storm winds}}} Optional The maximum windspeed of the strongest storm in knots. Must be a number. 160
{{{Average wind speed}}} Optional The length of time used to find the average measurement of the storm's maximum sustained winds. 10
{{{Total disturbances}}} Optional For the NIO this is defined as the number of Depressions in a season. For the rest of the basins it is the number of disturbances. For the Atl and NEPac basins, it is the number of Potential tropical cyclones. 48
{{{Total depressions}}} Optional For the NIO this is defined as the number of Deep Depressions in a season for other basins this is the total number of depressions in a season 31
{{{Total storms}}} Optional The total number of storms of at least TS strength 28
{{{Total hurricanes}}} Optional The total number of hurricane-strength systems 15
{{{Total intense}}} Optional For all basins, the number of major storms that formed. (Major hurricanes, super typhoons, severe and intense cyclones) 7
{{{Fatalities}}} Optional Total number of people killed (directly and indirectly) during the season. Use a range of values if necessary. If not used gives "Unknown". ≥2,280
{{{Damages}}} Optional Total damages from the season. This is expressed in millions of dollars in the year of the season. If not used gives "Unknown". If used must be a number. 120000
{{{fiveseasons}}} Mandatory Links to the next and previous 2 seasons around this one. In most cases this is just the previous 2 years and the following 2 years, with the current year in the center. For multi-season articles it takes a little more thought. 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006
{{{Strongest CPac name}}} Optional For Pacific hurricane seasons only, the name of the strongest CPac storm. Ioke
{{{Strongest CPac pressure}}} Optional As for the strongest storm, for the CPac only 915
{{{Strongest CPac winds}}} Optional As for the strongest storm, for the CPac only 140

Calculations

  • Pressure: If {{{basin}}} is one of Atl or EPac the template will calculate the pressure in inHg from the pressure in mbar and quote to 2dp.
  • Windspeeds: The template takes parameters here in terms of knots and returns mph and km/h (the order depending on the basin). It returns these to the nearest 5.

Microformat

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat that makes event details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
Classes used

The HTML classes this microformat uses include:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent
Please do not rename or remove these classes
nor collapse nested elements which use them.
