Abstract : Models of severe atmospheric conditions in the lowest 200 feet of the atmosphere were devised and tabulated. These models were chosen as representing the most severe conditions with regard to sonic, electromagnetic, and nuclear signal transmission, which are likely to be encountered in the tactical operation of army aircraft. These models were devised following an intensive literature survey of record precipitation and other meteorological conditions. (Author)
