WHAT IS AN INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE?

The Intertropical Convergence Zone, or ITCZ, is the region that circles the Earth, near the equator, where the trade winds of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres come together. The intense sun and warm water of the equator heats the air in the ITCZ, raising its humidity and making it buoyant. Aided by the convergence of the trade winds, the buoyant air rises. As the air rises it expands and cools, releasing the accumulated moisture in an almost perpetual series of thunderstorms.

Two typhoons in the Philippine Sea and a tropical storm near the China coast near Hong Kong and Macau have the region on alert. From left to right: Tropical Storm Linfa is tracking westward parallel to the coast of China, losing steam as the storm interacts with land. Typhoon Chan-hom is over the Ryukyu Trench south of Okinawa on a track heading northwest toward the China coast north of Wenzhou. A sharp northward turn forecast after landfall could take the center of the storm very near Shanghai.
