Abstract:

The Intertropical Convergence Zone off the Pacific Coast of Central America was thoroughly examined during the period of 28 September to 14 October 1957, by aircraft from the Hurricane Hunters. Microwave radar and other accessory instrumentation were carried on these aircraft that could obtain three-dimensional patterns on cloud formations over thousands of square miles. Also, these radar obtained three-dimensional patterns on rain intensity of thunderstorms over this same area. A surface ship served as a weather stations to collect surface and upper air observations.
