Abstract : The paper discusses mainly the adjustment of the thermal wind in a moist atmosphere at low latitudes when the condition of convective instability is satisfied. Initially, if the thermal vorticity of the wind field is larger than that of the temperature field and the horizontal scale of the disturbance is smaller than the characteristic scale of the adjustment, convective instability of the inertia waves will occur. The paper also discusses the dynamical essence of the triggering mechanism for typhoon formation. (Author)
