Abstract : The Tri-Service Cloud Modeling Program was established by OUSDR&E and is chaired by the Phillips Lab, Geophysics Directorate. As part of this program, the CIDOS conference is held at 18 month intervals. This forum was attended by over 150 researchers and DoD systems designers/users to exchange information on requirements and ongoing research for cloud effects of weapon, communication, and surveillance systems. The theme of CIDOS-93 was Clouds; The First Order Impact-For Defense and Civil Simulations. A Keynote address entitled Modeling and Simulation-To Fight the Future...Harness the Power of Simulation was presented by LtCol David Bartlett, Defense Modeling Simulation Office, United States Marine Corps. Three and a half days of CIDOS-93 were devoted to oral and poster presentations in six sessions: (1) Introduction and Program Reviews, (2A) Simulation Support, (2B) Analysis and Applications, (2C) Forecasting, (3) Systems and Sensors, and (4) Databases. The final session consisted of workshop meetings on two topics; Simulation Support and Cloud Microphysical Impacts Military Systems Support (e.g. Ship/Aircraft Tracks). Summaries of these are included in Part 1 of this document. Clouds, Cloud models, Cloud simulation, Cloud databases, Cloud observing, Cloud detecting, Cloud retrieval, Cloud effects.
