The Office of Naval Research Tropical Cyclone Motion initiative is a five-year program to improve basic understanding of tropical cyclone motion. The Tropical Cyclone Motion (TCM-90) field experiment was carried out during August and September 1990. The first section of this guide describes the overall data collection that combines the real-time and delayed data. The second section describes the preparation of the eight observation types contained in the merged data set. The third section describes the data base and magnetic tape formats. The fourth section is a summary of the data aspects of each Intensive Observing Period.
