The aim of this study is to detect how climate variability within the Southwest Pacific and Indian Ocean regions affects tropical cyclogenesis in the Australian region. Section 2 describes the data and methods, section 3 details a statistical analysis of the tropical cyclone best track data. Section 4 explains the results from a wavelet power spectrum of SST indices and of various TC regions while section 5 examines correlations between the filtered peaks from the wavelet analysis and compares this data to the seasonal frequency of tropical cyclones and the locations of TCG. Finally section 6 finally provides some conclusions and future work.
