Abstract

The AA. have reconstructed a 1,000-year time series of typhoon landfalls in the Guangdong Province, since AD 975 based on data compiled from Fang Zhi (semi-official local gazettes). Even though the 571 typhoon strikes recorded in the historical documents probably underrepresent the total number of typhoon landfalls in Guangdong, calibration of the historical data against the observations during the instrumental period 1884-1909 suggests that the trends of the 2 datasets are significantly correlated, confirming that the time series reconstructed from historical documentary evidence contains a reliable record of variability in typhoon landfalls. Spectral analysis of the Guangdong time series reveals a 50-year cycle in typhoon landfall frequency
