Abstract

The 1976 hurricane mason produced 111 “tropical systems”, of which 23 acquired the closed circulation of a depression. Over half of these (68) originated over the African Continent. These are the most African systems observed since our annual summary began in 1968. African seedlings initiated four of the eight named Atlantic storms, and all but one of the fourteen East Pacific storms.
