This paper represents a statistical evaluation of the relationship between relative vorticityand convective weather phenomena. Specifically, it contains a correlation of both vorticity neglecting wind shear and individual rate of change of vorticity, with convective activity. Data for these determinations was obtained from surface maps covering a two and one half year period, from January, 1949 to May, 1951. This work was conducted at the United States Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California in the spring of 1951 in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Aerology. The author wishes to express gratitude for ,the assistance of Associate Professor G. J. Haltiner, Department of Aerology, U. S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California.
