Abstract/Description: "The study was restricted to cyclones which appeared over Europe for at least two consecutive days during 1950"--Page v. The statistical relationships between five parameters which may be used to represent an atmospheric vortex are studied. These parameters are: the central height, ?h, the space change of height, ?h, a size factor, D, the mean gradient, h, and the "gradient-area index", I. The primary purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between the central height and each of the other parameters. The study was restricted to cyclones which appeared over Europe for at least two consecutive days during 1950. All measurements were made on the 500-mb chart. Each parameter was evaluated for 263 cyclones and the 24-hr change of each parameter was computed for 208 cyclones. The methods used to evaluate each parameter are discussed. For each pair of parameters, linear correlation coefficients were computed from grouped data.
