Tropical cyclone motion and recurvature in TCM-90
Rawinsonde and satellite data collected during tie Tropical Cyclone Motion (TCM- 90) experiment, which was conducted during the summer of 1990 in the Western North Pacific, is used to examine tropical cyclone steering motion and recurvature. TCM-90 composite results a.re compared with those found in a previous composite study using twenty-one years (1957-77) of Western North Pacific rawinsonde data during the same August- September period and also for August-September months during this same 21- year period. Both data sets indicate that the composite deep-layer-mean (850-300 mb) winds 5-7° from ...
