Abstract : The ONR Tropical Cyclone Motion initiative is a five-year program to improve basic understanding of tropical cyclone motion. On 27-30 January 1988, a meeting was held in Monterey, Calif to: 1) Review the first year's research activities; 2) Discuss issues and plan future research; and 3) Begin discussion of tentative hypotheses that might be explored in a field experiment in the western North Pacific region during summer 1990. Each of these topics is briefly discussed to indicate the progress and plans of the initiative. Keywords: Tropical meteorology; Typhoon motion.
