An Attempt to Develop the Law of Storms
In April 2020, the India Meteorological Department published a list of names of future tropical cyclones over the North Indian Ocean. The countries surrounding a particular basin name the cyclone that originates in that basin. As a result, the 13 countries that share the Indian Ocean basin have proposed 169 names, with each country proposing 13 names. The names are proposed following criteria set by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and are selected sequentially from the list. This public document is presented as a proposition for cultural practitioners to respond through their diverse approaches and possibilities.
