Abstract : This report contains an extensive and nearly complete series of the TIROS views of the major tropical cyclones of the Western Pacific during 1962. The report is intended to be more than a catalogue of the various views obtained. The relationship of the appearance of the cyclone to flow patterns suggested by cirrus striations and the direction of shear of cumulonimbus anvils, for example, is discussed. The question of development and changes in appearance with changes in intensity are also described.
