Several analysis techniques are used to determine the structure of a disturbance which traversed the GATE AB ship array from 9 to 11 August 1974. Emphasis is placed on the identification of an esterly wave and the tropospheric structure associated with it. The disturbance is also viewed as a pre-tropical cyclone cloud cluster. The vorticity, divergence and vertical motions fields are compared to field derived from western Pacific cloud clusters.
