Abstract

The observations of mesovortices in Hurricane Isable were studied. The mesovortices as viewed from the satellite, ranged in number from two to as many as ten. The mesovortex was identified as the same one as the satellite imagery and was tracked on radar for about 1/2 hour. The mesovortex is more prominent and easier to track on satellite imagery than with radar.
