   A method for cyclones identification based on the principle of low-pressure centres tracking is considered in the paper. A comparative analysis of the results of cyclone isolation from different reanaleses data sets both  NCEP / NCAR and 20CR (20th Century Reanalysis) was done.

Keywords: cyclones, storm-tracks change, low-pressure centres.
