Usage[change | edit source]

Parameter Type Description Example
{{{Basin}}} Mandatory A abbreviation denoting what basin is represented Atl, EPac, WPac, NIO, SHem, SWI, SPac, and Aus currently defined
{{{Year}}} Optional The year of the season, if a multiple year span is covered, use the most recent 2005
{{{Track}}} Optional The location of the track map, if present. 2005 Atlantic hurricane season map.png
{{{Track alt}}} Needed if {{{Track}}} is given Alt text for the track map, for visually impaired readers; see Wikipedia:Alternative text for images, particularly its Maps section. Tracks of about 28 tropical storms, including 15 hurricanes, cluster in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, with some scattered in the Atlantic. Seven hurricanes are major, and most of them make landfall on the U.S. Gulf coast.
{{{First storm formed}}} Mandatory Formation date (generally tropical storm-strength) of first storm (full date) Use {{start date}} June 8, 2005 (2005-06-08)
{{{Last storm dissipated}}} Mandatory Dissipation date of last storm (full date). Do not use {{start date}} January 6, 2006
{{{Strongest storm name}}} Mandatory The name of the strongest storm(s). Wikilink if appropriate. Wilma
{{{Strongest storm pressure}}} Optional The minimum pressure of the strongest storm in mbar/hPa. Must be a number. 882
{{{Strongest storm winds}}} Optional The maximum windspeed of the strongest storm in knots. Must be a number. 160
{{{Average wind speed}}} Optional The length of time used to find the average measurement of the storm's maximum sustained winds. 10
{{{Total disturbances}}} Optional For the NIO this is defined as the number of Depressions in a season. For the rest of the basins it is the number of disturbances 48
{{{Total depressions}}} Optional For the NIO this is defined as the number of Deep Depressions in a season for other basins this is the total number of depressions in a season 31
{{{Total storms}}} Optional The total number of storms of at least TS strength 28
{{{Total hurricanes}}} Optional The total number of hurricane-strength systems 15
{{{Total intense}}} Optional For all basins, the number of major storms that formed. (Major hurricanes, super typhoons, severe and intense cyclones) 7
{{{Fatalities}}} Optional Total number of people killed (directly and indirectly) during the season. Use a range of values if necessary. If not used gives "Unknown". ≥2,280
{{{Damages}}} Optional Total damages from the season. This is expressed in millions of dollars in the year of the season. If not used gives "Unknown". If used must be a number. 120000
{{{Inflated}}} Optional Gives the total damages from the season, in CURRENT year dollars. Use this parameter to call the number, and to state how many decimal places you want the figure to. 2
{{{fiveseasons}}} Mandatory Links to the next and previous 2 seasons around this one. In most cases this is just the previous 2 years and the following 2 years, with the current year in the center. For multi-season articles it takes a little more thought. 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006
{{{Strongest CPac name}}} Optional For Pacific hurricane seasons only, the name of the strongest CPac storm. Ioke
{{{Strongest CPac pressure}}} Optional As for the strongest storm, for the CPac only
{{{Strongest CPac winds}}} Optional As for the strongest storm, for the CPac only

Calculations[change | edit source]

  • Pressure: If {{{basin}}} is one of Atl or EPac the template will calculate the pressure in inHg from the pressure in mbar and quote to 2dp.
  • Windspeeds: The template takes parameters here in terms of knots and returns mph and km/h (the order depending on the basin). It returns these to the nearest 5.

Microformat[change | edit source]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project on English Wikipedia.

Sub-templates[change | edit source]

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change | edit source]

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
