1971 North Indian Ocean Cyclone Season
The years before 1975 featured the PRE-1975 NORTH INDIAN OCEAN CYCLONE SEASONS. Each season was an ongoing event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. The North Indian tropical cyclone season has no bounds, but they tend to form between April and December, peaks in May and November. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northern Indian Ocean . Below are the most significant cyclones in the time period. Because much of the North Indian coastline is near sea level and prone to flooding, these cyclones can easily kill many with storm surge and flooding. These cyclones are among the deadliest on earth in terms of numbers killed

Landfall (meteorology)
LANDFALL is the event of a storm moving over land after being over water. When a waterspout makes landfall it becomes a regular tornado , which can then cause damage inland. When a fair weather waterspout makes landfall it usually dissipates quickly as it loses the inflow of warm air into the vortex . CONTENTS * 1 Tropical cyclone

Tornado
or waterspout * 3 See also * 4 References TROPICAL CYCLONEA tropical cyclone is classified as making landfall when the center of the storm moves across the coast; in strong tropical cyclones this is when the eye moves over land. This is where most of the damage occurs within a mature tropical cyclone, such as a typhoon or hurricane, as most of the damaging aspects of these systems are concentrated near the eyewall . Such effects include the peaking of the storm surge , the core of strong winds coming ashore, and heavy flooding rains

Corvette
A CORVETTE is a small warship . It is traditionally the smallest class of vessel considered to be a proper (or "rated" ) warship. The warship class above the corvette is that of the frigate , while the class below was historically that of the sloop-of-war . The modern types of ship below a corvette are coastal patrol craft and fast attack craft . In modern terms, a corvette is typically between 500 tons and 2,000 tons although recent designs may approach 3,000 tons, which might instead be considered a small frigate. The word "corvette" is first found in Middle French , a diminutive of the Dutch word corf, meaning a small ship, from the Latin corbis, meaning "basket"

Low-pressure Area
A LOW-PRESSURE AREA, LOW, or DEPRESSION is a region where the topographic map is atmospheric pressure is lower than that of surrounding locations. Low-pressure systems form under areas of wind divergence that occur in the upper levels of the troposphere . The formation process of a low-pressure area is known as cyclogenesis . Within the field of meteorology , atmospheric divergence aloft occurs in two areas. The first area is on the east side of upper troughs, which form half of a Rossby wave
Rossby wave
within the Westerlies (a trough with large wavelength that extends through the troposphere). A second area of wind divergence aloft occurs ahead of embedded shortwave troughs , which are of smaller wavelength. Diverging winds aloft ahead of these troughs cause atmospheric lift within the troposphere below, which lowers surface pressures as upward motion partially counteracts the force of gravity
