The 2000 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 2000, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. [http://www.typhoon2000.ph/garyp_mgtcs/may03sum.txt] These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean.

The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the international date line. Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 2000 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical Storms formed in the entire west pacific basin are assigned a name by the Tokyo Typhoon Center. Tropical depressions in this basin have the "W" suffix added to their number. Tropical depressions that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility are assigned a name by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA. This can often result in the same storm having two names.

torms

In storm information below, wind-speed advisories differ from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) to the JMA as the JTWC uses the United States criteria of 1-minute mean to designate maximum sustained winds, while the JMA uses the 10-minute mean wind criteria to designate tropical cyclone maximum sustained winds. This difference generally results in JTWC maximum winds appearing higher than the maximum winds described by the JMA for the same cyclone.

Typhoon Damrey (Asiang)

Basin=WPac



Track=Damrey 2000 track.pngFormed=May 7
Dissipated=May 12
10-min winds=90
1-min winds=155
Pressure=930
Typhoon Damrey, which formed on May 3, rapidly intensified on the 8th and 9th to a 180 mph super typhoon with a minimum central pressure of 878 millibars. It continued to the northeast, and vertical shear caused it to dissipate on the 12th. Damrey was the strongest typhoon of the season, and the strongest May typhoon since Typhoon Phyllis in 1958 but Damrey was more intense with a pressure of 878 millibars; Phylis just had higher winds at 185 mph. Damrey had no significant effects on land in its life.

Tropical Storm Chanchu

Basin=WPac



Track=Chanchu 2000 track.pngFormed=July 28
Dissipated=July 29
10-min winds=35
1-min winds=40
Pressure=996
A tropical wave organized into Tropical Depression One-C on July 20. It strengthened slowly and moved nearly due west. After reaching storm strength on July 21, it was named Upana, which is Hawaiian for "Urban". Despite a favourable environment, Upana never strengthened much, and it dissipated on July 23 for unexplained reasons. Upana's remnants continued moving to the west, and crossed the dateline. Upana is the first storm in the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's area of responsibility to be named in July.

The remnants of Upana encountered a favourable environment just west of the dateline, and they formed Tropical Depression 12W. The depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Chanchu. The name Chanchu, submitted by Macau, is a Chinese word for pearl. Chanchu moved north, and had dissipated by July 30.

Gary Padgett suggested that there was good evidence Chanchu was actually a regeneration of Upana. The official policy is that dateline crossers keep their name. However, there was supposedly some doubt at the time so Chanchu and Upana were officially treated as distinct tropical cyclones. Also, since Upana had dissipated several days earlier, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center had already assigned a new number for the system, Gary Padgett deemed it likely that the Japan Meteorological Agency's decision to rename the cyclone was the best choice.

The next day it reached its peak wind speed of 30 knots. on the 1st of June the JTWC issued its final Advisory on the 1st of June as it approached the coast of Vietnam.

Tropical Depression

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=WPac
WarningCenter=HKO


Formed=June 18
Dissipated=June 18
10-min winds=30
Pressure=1000
A vortex in an active trough over the South China Sea developed into a midget tropical depression on June 18, 35 km south-southwest of Hong Kong. It moved northward and made landfall that day, with its very small circulation being well captured by the Observatory's network of automatic weather stations. The depression brought light rain to Hong Kong and moderate winds. Although this tropical depression was widely recognised by Asian agencies, there are still disputes on the nature of this system. It had an unusually small size and formed surprisingly close to land.

torm names

Western North Pacific tropical cyclones were now named by the RSMC Tokyo-Typhoon Center of the Japan Meteorological Agency. Previous typhoon season names were assigned by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Names are now selected from the following lists, there is no annual list. Names are selected from the following lists, there is no annual list. Names were contributed by 13 members of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee, except for Singapore. The 13 nations or territories, along with Micronesia, each submitted 10 names, which are used in alphabetical order by the English name of the country. The first storm of 2000 was named Damrey and the final one was named Soulik.

Philippines

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) uses its own naming scheme for tropical cyclones within its area of responsibility. Lists are recycled every four years. This is the same list used for the 1996 season.
