Several data sources have been utilised to study the climatology of the South Indian Ocean tropical storms based on 110 years data for 1855-1964. Seasonal and geographical distribution, origins of the initially observed disturbances, frequencies of storms in different longitudinal belts, probabilities of occurrence of storms and their movements and life duration are discussed in detail.
