The 1973 summer growth of hurricane heat potential (HHP) and its relation to tropical cyclones was studied in the Philippine Sea and the Gulf of Mexico on a monthly basis. BT information was processed through the Fleet Numerical Weather Central CDC 6500 computer to output maps of HHP, which were hand contoured. Inadequate data coverage and questionable BT observations resulted in monthly maps of varying validity and areal extent.
