Abstract

The problem of finding the probability that a tropical storm will be in a given area at forecast time is considered graphically.

With given bivariate data that have a joint normal distribution, a method is presented for plotting ellipses and rays which partition the data area into annuli and sectors having equal values of integrated probability.
