STREAMLINE ANALYSIS

The weak horizontal pressure and temperature gradients of the tropics do not adequately explain much of the weather occurring there. Therefore, another element is used to better explain tropical weather patterns. That element is the wind. An analysis of the wind field is called a streamline analysis. A tropical analysis is a continuous representation of the wind field constructed from plotted wind observations and data gathered from satellite imagery.

Plotting 

Wind arrows and barbs are plotted and the wind direction and speed written in parentheses alongside the barb. Streamline charts are usually plotted every 12 hours, but data from off-time periods are used to supplement the 12-hourly data.
