The Organization of Tropical Eastern Pacific Convection (OTREC) Field Campaign
Tuesday, March 3, 2020
The character of deep convection and the means by which it is forced are important to all tropical circulations, including tropical cyclones, tropical waves, the Madden-Julian oscillation, the ITCZ, and the Hadley and Walker cells. The goal of the OTREC field campaign was to make measurements in the east Pacific and southwest Caribbean to better understand how convection there works together with large-scale circulations in these regions.
