This study examines the large-scale vorticity and vertical motion fields over eastern Asia during a subperiod (13–16 February) of the Air Mass Transformation Experiment (AMTEX) 1975. This represents a period of cyclogenesis and subsequent formation of mesoscale cellular convection (MCC) over the AMTEX region. Vertical motion and vorticity fields reflect the developing cyclone and a short synoptic-scale upper wave which propagated across the computational region. Results for the AMTEX region reveal that during MCC occurrences large-scale downward motion and a change from negative to positive vertical gradient of vorticity in the lower troposphere occur.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1977.tb00750.x
