Abstract

In most tropical regions, the large-scale flow patterns are most reliably established by analysis of the wind reports. In these regions, stream functions must be calculated either wholly or partially from the wind analysis itself. To do this, however, it is necessary to specify the stream function, or its normal derivative, on the boundary of the region considered. This paper examines several schemes which may be useful for this purpose.
