Abstract : This analysis deals with the examination of 24 hr surface prognostic charts of the Dunstable, Offenbach, and Moscow weather centers. By considering only the centers of cyclones and anticyclones the problem was simplified fundamentally, so that a relation could be established to meteorological processes that produce the 24 hr changes. By a procedure similar to the correlation method, quality numbers were received, by which not only the efficiency was compared but also with the help of sufficiently large populations to give a quantitative picture of the present status of development prognosis. The results of two 9 months populations and one 18 months population are presented in particular. (Author)
