Abstract:

The objective of the investigations was to determine the characteristic variability of weather elements of concern to aviation operations and to identify the characteristic lifetimes and space scales of the weather processes involved in short-period forecasting. The studies were concerned almost exclusively with variations in atmospheric transmission as recorded by more-or-less conventional instruments installed in the vicinity of airfield runways. The principle sources of data were the multiple installations at the Federal Aviation Agency Y National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center NAFEC and the John F. Kennnedy International Airport in New York City. Author
