The AA. have developed a Tropical Cyclone Potential Impact Index (TCPI) based on the air mass trajectories, disaster information, intensity, duration, and frequency of tropical cyclones. They analyzed the spatial pattern and interannual variation of the TCPI over the period 1949-2009, and taking the Super Typhoon Saomai as an example have examined the relationship between the TCPI and direct economic losses, total rainfall, and maximum wind speed. The results reveal that China’s TCPI appears to be a weak decreasing trend over the period, which is not significant overall, but significant in some periods
