    This is bugging me now, its difficult to see but the winds seem to be circling in different directions on the low above and below the 'E' system then it is at the Equator? Had a look at this which explains it very useful I thought
    https://www.fas.org/irp/imint/docs/r...Sect14_1c.html

    So E most likely means Equator and the doldrums then. i.e. Intertropical convergence zone which have hadley cells above and below the zone? It looks like Malaysia so would be in the right place to be equatorial.
    Though you guys are the professional navigators, I'm just a lowly PPL....... so what do you think?

    Without seeing the whole thing it's difficult to say its not something simple like a label so you can identify it from another low or high
    No as far as i remember it had nothing to explain it because we couldnt find the answer from the report.
    The report simply had that E inside those two circles that neither seem to be like a low nor like a high

    actually i dont remember where exactly we got it from because it is pretty old, i just kept the picture to find the answer when i got out.
    But i remember it is not a high since on the other pages highs existed and they were labeled H and all the report were in English.
    Plus it doesnt seem to be a high since it has a wierd wind around it that looks like it is "breaking" the isobars like it is some kind of obstacle.(in before gigantic invisible alien disc)

    So there is this "E" on the report but i have failed to find ANYONE irl who knows what it means, even the meteorology professor....
    It obviously has wind around it so i doesnt seem to be a symbol for the equator, so internet, got any idea what it is?
