Abstract

Data from a number of reconnaissance flights into large Pacific tropical cyclones are combined to obtain a generalized pattern of winds at low level (about 1000 feet) under both stationary and non-stationary conditions. With these winds, a number of dependent computations are made including relative trajectories, divergence, vertical motion, rainfall, energy, and relative vorticity.
