Re: cyclone life-cycle


Your suggestion was well received by the COMET people, so I suspect it
will become a casestudy. If not tho' Liz Page indicated that she did store
MOST if not all the data associated with the event, so if you need to dump
some of your data for space requirements, feel comfortable that we also
have it stored here...in anticipation of case development, and we can get
all or some desired segment to you via ftp. 

Thanks again for your input..and have a Happy Halloween,
