}The 2002 Pacific typhoon season had no official bounds; it ran year-round in 2002, 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 2002 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.Most of the 31 cyclones that developed this year either remained out at sea or were weak at landfall.

10-min winds=55
1-min winds=50
Pressure=980
Kammuri was a name contributed by Japan which means 'crown'. Lagalag was a Filipino name and an adjective meaning 'wandering, or 'roving'.

Tropical Depression 16W formed at 0600 UTC on the August 2 as it tracked west-northwestward. The system turned northward the next day under the influence of a low to mid-level ridge over the East China Sea. The depression turned back to the west shortly later as it became less influenced by the southwesterly monsoon flow. The system was consolidating, and six hours later, the cyclone was upgraded to Tropical Storm Kammuri. Soon afterwards, a surge in the southwest monsoon was pushing Kammuri on an east-northeast and the cyclone started to lift out of the monsoon trough. Kammuri made landfall with winds of 60 mph (50 kts) at 2200 UTC, just east of Shanwei. The storm began to accelerate ahead of an approaching mid-latitude low-pressure system and was downgraded to a tropical depression at midday as it moved farther inland. The surface cyclone dissipated over the mountainous coastline of eastern China and its remnants linked up with a cold front by August 5.

107 people died because of Kammuri and the direct economic losses are estimated at 4.219 billion yuan. The reported number of collapsed houses was 20,182. [ [http://australiasevereweather.com/cyclones/2003/summ0208.txt] Dead link|date=March 2008]

An eastern extension of the monsoon trough south of Hawaii organized into Tropical Depression Two-C on August 27 and strengthened into Tropical Storm Ele six hours later. Despite the nearby presence of Alika, Ele developed rapidly and strengthened into a hurricane on August 28. After contributing to the demise of Alika, Ele continued strengthening. It reached Category 2 intensity late on August 28 and became a major hurricane 6 hours later. Ele then crossed the International Date Line and became a typhoon. Typhoon Ele turned to the northwest after crossing the dateline and continued to strengthen. It reached Category 4 before turning north and weakening again. After briefly restrengthening back into a Category 4, the typhoon declined and turned to the northwest. Ele fell to a tropical storm on September 7, a depression on September 9, and dissipated shortly after that. Ele was of no threat to land.ref|CPHCEle

See the 2002 Pacific hurricane season for information on Huko before it had crossed the International Dateline. Hurricane Huko crossed the International Dateline early on November 3rd and in to the Japan Meteorological Agency's (JMA) Area of responsibilty who redesignated it as a Typhoon and assigned the international designation of TY 0224. After moving in to the western pacific it reached its peak 10 minute wind speeds of 75 knots. cite web|url=http://www.jma.go.jp/jma/jma-eng/jma-center/rsmc-hp-pub-eg/AnnualReport/2002/Text/Text2002.pdf|publisher=JMA|title=Typhoon Huko|accessdate=2008-08-29] Huko maintianed this strength for a couple of days as it moved towards the west. Huko moved west-northwestward over the sea north of the Marshall Islands and then on November 5th it then made a slow turn towards the North-west after passing to the North of Wake Island. Later that day Huko was downgraded to a severe tropical storm as it recurved towards the northeast and then into a Tropical storm early the next day. On November 7th both the JTWC and JMA issued their final advisories on Huko as it had become Extra tropical. The remnant low of Huko moved back to in the Central Pacific later that day and continued moving westwards. cite web|url=http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/2002.php#huko|publisher=CPHC|title=Hurricane Huko|accessdate=2008-08-26] cite web|url=http://metocph.nmci.navy.mil/jtwc/atcr/2002atcr/2002atcr.pdf|publisher=JTWC|title=Hurricane Huko|accessdate=2008-08-29]

10-min winds=90
1-min winds=130
Pressure=940
Typhoon Pongsona was the last typhoon of the season, and was the costliest disaster in 2002 in the United States.cite web|author=Federal Emergency Management Agency|year=2003|title=Super Typhoon Pongsona: The First 100 Days Over $300 Million In Disaster Relief And Assistance|accessdate=2007-07-27|url=http://www.fema.gov/news/newsrelease.fema?id=2240] The name "Pongsona" was contributed by North Korea and is the Korean name for the garden balsam. Pongsona developed out of an area of disturbed weather on December 2, and steadily intensified to reach typhoon status on December 5. On December 8 it passed through Guam and the Northern Marianas Islands while near its peak 10-min winds of 175 km/h (110 mph). It ultimately turned to the northeast, weakened, and became extratropical on December 11.

Considered by some to be the worst typhoon to have struck Guam, Pongsona produced strong wind gusts peaking at 278 km/h (173 mph), which left the entire island without power and destroyed about 1,300 houses. With strong building standards and experience from repeated typhoon strikes, there were no fatalities directly related to Pongsona, though there was one indirect death from flying glass. Damage on the island totaled over $700 million (2002 USD, $800 million 2007 USD), making Pongsona among the five costliest typhoons on the island. The typhoon also caused heavy damage on Rota and elsewhere in the Northern Marianas Islands, and as a result of its impact, the name was retired.

Other storms

These systems were not officially named as tropical storms by the JMA, although the JMA might have monitored them as tropical depressions. They were, however, designated as tropical cyclones by the Philippines (PAGASA), China (CMA), and/or the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC).

On July 16 the JTWC issued a TCFA on a tropical Disturbance. Two days later PAGASA issued their first warning on the Disturbance and upgraded it to a tropical depression assigning the name Juan to the Depression. The JTWC also issued its first warning at the same time as PAGASA, with the JTWC assigning the number 13W to the Depression. With the system located about 50 nm east of Mindanao in the Philippines. Moving west-northwestward at 6 kts, the depression accelerated to 12 kts and turned north-northwestward towards the central Philippines. Tropical Depression Juan then crossed Samar early on the 19 July with the Maximum Sustained Winds estimated at 30 kts. On 20 July the JTWC Upgraded Juan to Tropical Storm Status with peak wind speeds of 35kts. Within their next advisory the JTWC downgraded Juan to tropical depression status. Tropical Depression Juan then moved over Luzon Island. The system then moved into the South China Sea on the 22 July. However as the LCCC and the convection were dissipating the JTWC issued their final warning early that day. However PAGASA continued to issue advisories on Juan’s Remnants for another day before releasing their final advisory on July 23. Damage in the Philippines was estimated at $25 Million with Juan causing 18 Deaths.

A TCFA was released on a Tropical Disturbance, which was located South-east of Japan, on August 5, by the JTWC. The disturbance was upgraded to Tropical Depression 17W later that day with peak wind speeds of 25 knots. However the depression did not develop any further, and the final advisory was released later that day due to Moderate vertical shear, a weak outflow, and cool sea surface temperatures.

A tropical disturbance formed in the Philippine Sea on August 8. A Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert was issued on August 10, by The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), who upgraded the disturbance to Tropical Depression 18W later that day when they issued their first advisory. PAGASA then issued their first warning on the depression, designating it as Milenyo. The JTWC then upgraded the depression to Tropical Storm status on August 12, However neither PAGASA nor the JMA upgraded the system to Tropical Storm status as they both analysed the depression as having peak winds of 30 kts. The JTWC then downgraded the system to a tropical depression early on August 13 due to it having its Low Level Circulation Centre exposed. Later that day tropical depression 18W (Milenyo) made landfall on Luzon, Philippines; there were no casualties reported though. The JTWC issued their last advisory on August 13 after the depression made landfall.

torm names

Western North Pacific tropical cyclones are named by the RSMC Tokyo-Typhoon Center of the Japan Meteorological Agency. Names are selected from the following sequential list, 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 2002 was named Tapah and the final one was named Pongsona.

Two central pacific storms, Hurricane Ele 02C and Hurricane Huko 03C, crossed into this basin. They became Typhoon Ele and Typhoon Huko keeping their original name and "C" suffix.

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.

Retirement

The names Chataan, Rusa, and Pongsona were retired after this year.They were replaced with Matmo, Nuri, and Noul.
