What I did:
I was searching for an article about typhoons, until I had came across an article which had stated the difference between a typhoon, hurricane and cyclone.
What I had learnt:
I had learnt that all of them are actually of the same weather phenomenon, but by having different names scientists will know where this phenomenon is occurring. In northwestern Pacific they are known as "typhoons", while in the the Indian and the southern Pacific they are known as "severe tropical cyclones". In the northern Indian Ocean, they're called "severe cyclonic storms." In the southwestern Indian Ocean, they are known as "tropical cyclones."
This article mainly describes the difference between a typhoon, hurricane and cyclone and how Global Warming can affect how often these weather phenomenon occurs.
