Abstract

Photographs of radar observations taken at Calcutta of a cyclonic storm of 13.14 September 1958 in the head Bay of Bengal are presented in the paper. It is interesting that with a cyclone of moderate inters. city, the eye of the storm was clearly seen on the radarscope in the form of a 'hook', which enabled accurate location of the storm. Such detection of the eye on the radarscope is the first of its kind in the Indian latitudes. The observed dimension and movement of the 'eye' and the associated observed precipitation echoes around the storm centre are discussed.
