Abstract : The Navy Tactical Applications Guide (NTAG), Volume 6, is devoted to regional weather analysis and forecast applications of meteorological satellite imagery in the tropics. Part 1 deals with operationally significant phenomena and effects in the tropics, excluding tropical cyclones. Part 2, to be published at a later date, will focus on tropical cyclone genesis and evolution in areas around the globe. The volume is organized into four regional areas: Tropical Atlantic Ocean, Tropical Eastern Pacific Ocean (EASTPAC), Tropical Western Pacific Ocean (WESTPAC), and Tropical Indian Ocean. In each section, synoptic-scale phenomena are discussed first, followed by mesoscale phenomena. A number of new analysis techniques, never before published, appear in this volume. The analysis techniques will be useful to Navy meteorologists aboard ships operating in coastal regions or in mid-ocean transit.
