Abstract:

This report includes A Photogrammetric Study of Cloud Structure Associated With Clear-Air Turbulence. Scientific interim technical rept., pt. 1, by Robert W. Hayman. Feb 62. On The Nature Of Clear-Air Turbulence CAT. Scientific interim rept., pt. 2, by Elmar R. Reiter. Feb 62. The application of tested photogrammetric principles to the study of cloud configurations appears to be a most practical method of defining a transient and complex system. Relative accuracies of the photogrammetric methods seem to be well within the requirements of dimensional definition. Absolute accuracy of the systems probably warrants further refinement. Cost of these evaluation procedures, exclusive of development, are low enough to allow the continued application of the photogrammetric approach to problems of this nature.
