Removed last message by myself, maybe one think this was in bad faith. Congratulating Jdorge for working so hard (noting that he added maps to almost all years) afterhis wikivacations juan andrés 00:56, 4 February 2006 (UTC). Phew, much better! juan andrés 05:40, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

  • "The 1975 Atlantic hurricane season featured the first tropical storm to be upgraded to a hurricane based solely on satellite imagery" - I'd personally say "hurricane intensity" than "a hurricane", but it's semantics and NBD. Also, you should clarify that it was Doris, since you start the whole article with that storm but don't mention the name.
  • Fixed the Doris part--12george1 (talk) 21:59, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Be clearer that Tropical Storm Amy wasn't Tropical Depression One. For example - "Tropical Storm Amy in July..."
  • "and resulted in one death after a ship capsized offshore North Carolina" --> "and killed one person when a ship capsized..." - be more direct in your writing
  • Are you sure Blanche's damage total is in USD?
  • I used a currency convert to get that total--12george1 (talk) 21:59, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
  • "The Atlantic hurricane season officially ended on November 30,[2] though the final tropical cyclone became extratropical on December 13." - did it? The final tropical cyclone dissipated on December 1, but the final system was a subtropical storm. Find a way to word this to reflect the SS.
  • "Broadly speaking, ACE is a measure of the power of a tropical or subtropical storm multiplied by the length of time it existed. " - is that true? I seem to remember subtropical storms not being included in ACE measure, but I could be wrong.
  • I think they might be counted today, but not back then--12george1 (talk) 21:59, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
  • "Further intensification and the storm reached its peak intensity with winds of 70 mph" - missing verb?
  • "Amy featured many subtropical characteristics" - maybe explain, since this would be the first time "subtropical" appears in the body of the article?
  • What happened after Amy became extratropical? Ditto Doris and Gladys.
  • " Because the cold front weakened and baroclinity,[7] Blanche continued to intensify" - the layman might have a hard time knowing why the first half of the sentence has anything to do with the second half. Could you explain a bit further? Even if it was just reordering the sentence, like "A weakening cold front and baroclinic forces created an environment favorable for intensifying..."
  • "In Atlantic Canada, the remnants of Blanche produced high winds, gusting up to 70 mph (110 km/h) and moderate rainfall, peaking at 3.1 in (79 mm) in Chatham, New Brunswick." - I tweaked this sentence a bit for flow. Make sure it's OK.
  • "Many homes and businesses lost telephone service." - I'm assuming this is PEI, since you already mentioned Nova Scotia utilities.
  • Why does TD 5 have its own section? It seems fairly short compared to the rest of the sections.
  • Merged with the Other systems--12george1 (talk) 22:32, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
  • "Numerous roads were flooded and closed, with $3.2 million in damage incurred to that infrastructure." - could be written a bit tighter. Also, no TD 6 effects in Louisiana/Mississippi?
  • I forgot how short that section was. As you probably know, I'm making an article for it and I guess you could say I skimped too much on the section. I also neglected to mention 3 deaths. I found stuff for Mississippi but not Louisiana--12george1 (talk) 02:58, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
  • "and making landfall near Mayarí, Holguín Province, in Cuba on August 25" - for longer-lived storms that have multiple landfalls, I don't think you need to be so specific with the landfall location. The area wasn't even called Holguín Province in 1975 (it was split off in 1978), so you could just say "making landfall along the northern coast in eastern Cuba." or something
  • "The system then intensified into Tropical Storm Caroline early on August 29. At 00:00 UTC on August 30, Caroline intensified into a hurricane. " - could you combine?
  • "Further strengthening occurred, with the storm peaked as a Category 3 hurricane with winds of 115 mph (185 km/h) and a minimum pressure of 963 mbar (28.4 inHg) about 24 hours later." - if it's 24 hours after it became a hurricane, then that should be earlier in the sentence to benefit the flow of time for the readers. Also, the wording is a bit awkward in the italicized part.
  • You should add that Tamaulipas is in northeast Mexico
  • It's located on the other side of the wall :P --12george1 (talk) 04:47, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
  • " the hurricane began interacting with a non-tropical low pressure." - missing word?
  • Add the northward turn for Eloise in the GoM
  • It's already there. "northern Yucatán Peninsula, Eloise turned northward and re-intensified."--12george1 (talk) 04:47, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Link Agnes?
  • It would bring back bad memories :P --12george1 (talk) 04:47, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
  • "After detaching from the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) " - given that you don't use the acronym "ITCZ" again after this, you probably don't need to abbreviate it.
  • You mention very specific islands within broader archipelagos in the article. For example: Doris (Flores island in the Azores), Faye (Corvo Island in the Azores), and Gladys (Brava in the Cabo Verde islands). It just seems overly specific, considering you're just giving a broad distance from a location.
  • Can you expand the MH for Tropical Depression Seventeen? I'd also add the peak rainfall.
  • I can but not too much. Meteorologically, it really wasn't that impressive and of course was just a TD. I added the peak rainfall--12george1 (talk) 01:03, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Do you know how SS2 got to where it was? It seems like a unique track, going south at that location and time of year and becoming a subtropical storm. What was the basis for the 70 mph peak intensity?
  • I couldn't find an explanation for the southward movenment in the MWR, the Atlantic Tropical Systems of 1975, or The Weather and Circulation for December 1975. The peak intensity was an observation from a ship on December 10--12george1 (talk) 01:03, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
  • (TD1) - "The depression dissipated about 305 miles (491 km) southeast of Sable Island on June 29" - watch for rounding, and maybe indicate broadly where Sable Island is
  • "On September 3, a tropical depression developed near Cape Verde." - elsewhere in the article, you use "Cabo Verde Islands". Be consistent. Also, since another TD developed the same day (just farther to the east), perhaps say "On September 3, two tropical depressions developed near Cape Verde. The westernmost, designated TD 8... The easternmost originated between Cape Verde and the coast of Africa..." It would help with the flow of the article
  • "A tropical depression developed over the eastern Atlantic Ocean on October 3. It dissipated by October 5." - combine these sentences, and maybe be more specific about location? Eastern Atlantic could be anything from Cabo Verde to Azores to UK

All in all a good description of the storms in 1975. It just needs some polishing around the edges to be a GA. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:29, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
