Abstract

It is found that the observed relative motion of Atlantic hurricanes occurring simultaneously as pairs is related to the orientation of their line of centers, and that the tendency to approach is more pronounced when the hurricane centers are positioned in an east-to-west through southeast-to-northwest line. Other orientations of hurricane pairs have been associated with a separation of the centers.

The relative motion of centers of pairs separated more than 600 nautical miles is found to be predominantly clockwise. Most of the cases of counterclockwise revolution of these hurricane pairs occurred when the centers were oriented in essentially an east-to-west line. Limited data suggest relative, counterclockwise revolution existed in most cases with centers separated less than 600 nautical miles.

It is found that the predominant relative motion of Pacific tropical cyclone pairs in the vicinity of the Philippines is counterclockwise. It is suggested that this difference in relative motion of Pacific tropical cyclone pairs from that of Atlantic pairs may be due to differences in circulation patterns related to geographical features.
