Tropical cyclones (TCs), generally accompanied by strong wind and heavy rainfall, cause numerous human and property losses after their landfalls on coastal countries. Many previous studies have been concerned with interannual to decadal variations of TC intensity. Particularly, many studies found that the interannual variations of TC maximum intensity are significantly affected by El-Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO). However, they did not consider TC landfall intensity that is directly linked with social damages by TCs. This study examined interannual variations of TC landfall intensity associated with ENSO.
