Speed of Tropical Cyclone Motion in Field of Gravity Anomalies

  • M. I. Yaroshevich


The dependence of the speed of tropical-cyclone motion on the values of gravity anomalies in the regions of cyclone action is studied. The regression dependence of the cyclone motion speed on the gravity anomalies is revealed. Calculations are performed for cyclonic zones of the northwestern Pacific and western Atlantic. Fields of vertical components of the gravity anomalies are considered.
