Abstract:

Special emphasis was placed on the observational program, the primary aims being to test the ability of the 10 cm radar to detect hail and to obtain data suitable for studying the variations in the vertical structure of convective storms during their lifetimes. Both objectives wereACCOMPLISHED. The cooperation of meteorologists associated with one of the local broadcasting stations provided hundreds of reports of hail occurrences. The agreement between the locations at which hail was reported and the tracks of high-intensity contours was excellent. Author
