Abstract:

This study is designed to provide military planners, design engineers, and AWS personnel who support them, with estimates of the frequencies with which specified cloud amounts will be encountered within specified altitude ranges. The information is shown by isopleths on Northern Hemisphere base maps for the midseason months. These data will furnish inputs into the strategic planning of environmental support to a system or an operation, for example, in selecting design criteria for equipment, determining the feasibility of an operation, and establishing long-range operational plans. The tactical, or short-range, planning should be based on synoptic weather forecasts which give gono-go advice. Author
