Abstract:

The Tropical Cyclone Motion initiative is a five-year program to improve basic understanding of tropical cyclone motion. The tropical Cyclone Motion TCM-90 field experiment was carried out during August and September 1990. The first section of this report describes the data management plan for TCM-90, and includes descriptions of the observational systems that provided data in real-time and on a delayed basis. The second section of this report summarizes the seven Intensive Observation Periods during TCM-90. A summary of the real-time data collection also is provided to aid the reader in selecting cases for study. A more complete listing that includes delayed data will be provided about April 1991, when the production of the final analyses will begin.
