In these investigations, it was shown that the origin of convexities in the form of the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), having distinct configurations, can lead to the formation of different large-scale vortices, in particular, a cyclonic vortex, pair of cyclonic-anticyclonic vortices, and pair of cyclonic vortices, during the period not longer than three days.
