Nine case studies are presented in which rectified Tiros photographs of cloud patterns over the South Florida region are correlated with synoptic weather data and radar observations of precipitation on the meso scale. Tiros V, VI and VII data from August 1962 through October 1963, including hurricane Ginny, were used in the study. Previous work in the development of an optical rectification and gridding system for satellite photographs is summarized. Also, this rectification system is further evaluated as to accuracy and applications. Author
