A revised method for tropical analysis is proposed that permits a greater utilization of recent advances in tropical meteorology than is possible with conventional methods. It is suggested that the surface map be replaced with a “basic chart” which contains wind reports from an upper level, surface 24-hour pressure changes, and cloud and weather reports. Plotting and analysis methods for this chart are discussed. Finally, a survey is given of auxiliary charts and diagrams considered useful for tropical analysis.
