Abstract : The basic report is a progressive step in an updating of tropical storm climatology. It discusses areas which subsequently became tropical geographic areas: the northwest Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the West Indies. Mean motion fields were computed with respect to a coordinate system with its origin at the moving potential storm center.
