                         vortices, one off the southeastern Brazil coast and the other off 
                         the Mozambique coast, in the period 19792012 is undertaken for 
                         comparison of their characteristics with the help of the TRACK 
                         algorithm and the NCEP2 Reanalysis data sets. The aim is to 
                         understand the nature of intense cyclogeneses in those two 
                         subtropical coastal regions. Although the two groups form in 
                         almost the same latitude belt and under similar conditions and 
                         thus have some common features, they differ in several evolution 
                         and movement characteristics. The South American intense cyclones 
                         are more frequent. They move rapidly into southern South Atlantic 
                         while the African cyclones remain quasi-stationary during the 
                         first 2 days of their life time. Thermal structures show that the 
                         Mozambique Channel region presents more conditional instability. 
                         The South American intense cyclones present more kinetic energy 
                         than their counterparts in the first 2 days. The precipitation 
                         around the South American cyclones decreases gradually. The 
                         Mozambique Channel cyclones gain kinetic energy after moving away 
                         from the Madagascar Island and preserve their baroclinity longer 
                         and therefore the mean precipitation rate around their centres 
                         remains constant. The sea surface temperature, the geographical 
                         features and the circulation characteristics of the two regions 
                         are responsible for the differences. Eventually, after 4 days of 
                         their formation, cyclones of both the groups join the Southern 
                         Hemispheric extratropical storm-tracks.",
