This paper describes the technique of locating the apparent source of atmospherics employing several stations located at a considerable distance from each other and equipped with cathoderay-tube direction finders. It discusses the data obtained on six tropical storms and compares the results with the estimate of the positron of the storm center as reported on the daily bulletins of the United Stes Weather Bureau. It presents some evidence of close connection between static and meteorological conditions. It suggests that further studies should be made along the same or similar lines to establish the feasibility of this method for locating the center of tropical storms by means of their associated static.
