Qualitative physical analysis of the vortex motion and heat influx (balance) equations, quantitative estimates from the observational data, results of mathematical (numerical) modeling, and generalization of the experience on routine operation with synoptic aerological data lead to a conclusion that a baroclinic factor (geostrophic advection of the temperature, moisture, and salinity) plays an important role in the formation, evolution, and motion of synoptic vortices. The conclusions that follow from this analysis offer the explanation (interpretation) of salient features in the formation, evolution, and motion of tropical cyclones in the atmosphere and synoptic vortices (rings) in the ocean.
