Cyclone Asani : Year’s first cyclone over Bay of Bengal

According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the cyclone will easily turn into a ‘severe cyclonic storm’. It is developed in the south-eastern regions of the Bay of Bengal.

Asani is the first cyclonic storm in the northern Indian Ocean region in the year 2022.

This name has been given by Sri Lanka to this cyclone. Asani means “anger” in Sinhalese.

The cyclone to be formed after Asani will be called “Sitrang”. This is the name given by Thailand.

The upcoming cyclones designated by India are; Ghurni, Probaho, Jhar and Murasu.

Tropical cyclones are destructive storms. These originate from the warm sea water near the equator.

  • Large sea surface with temperatures above 27°
  • The presence of the Coriolis force.
  • Partial change in vertical wind speed.
  • An area of weak low pressure already existing or a low level cyclonic circulation.
  • Upper divergence over the sea level system

Nomenclature of cyclone-

  • Six Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers (RSMCs) have been given the power to issue advisories on cyclonic storms and naming them.
  • These centers include the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) and five Regional Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres.
  • The naming of cyclones in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea began in September
