Abstract

A statistical résumé of the season is presented, and a tentative climatology is proposed, based on 5 yr of operational satellite coverage. Basic data were increased through more reconnaissance flights and satellite pictures. No direct storm casualties or damage from storm winds or seas were reported. Casualties and damage resulting from the Arizona flood diaster were indirectly related to tropical storm Norma. The chronicle of hurricanes and tropical storms deals mainly with the relationship of the data to hurricane intensity and to physical processes within the various tropical cyclones.

Abstract

A résumé of the 1969 tropical cyclone season of the eastern North Pacific Ocean is presented. A comparison between aircraft reconnaissance and satellite wind-speed estimates is made with limited data. The presentation is a chronicle of individual tropical storms and hurricanes during 1969, including satellite pictures and near-synoptic post-reconnaissance debriefings.

Abstract

A statistical resume of the season is presented and the lack of a valid climatology for comparison is pointed out. Background for the report is provided through discussion of limited basic data and description of the unique hurricane environment. Contributions of 1968 hurricanes to general knowledge of storms in the area include new ideas relating to inflow of cool air off cold water to the north and a demonstration that vertical shear has diagnostic value for revealing stoppage of the hurricane convective chimney. A few generalities as to the relationship between 1968 hurricane and storm behavior and middle latitude circulation are considered. A chronicle of individual storms and hurricanes gives particular attention to important data, mainly satellite pictures, and includes an example of a small intense hurricane with radius of tropical storm intensity winds of approximately 40 mi.
