Abstract:

The research was reported herein was conducted during the second quarter of a contractual investigation was aimed at providing the Army field units with techniques for the use of weather satellite data. Results to date for each of several tasks are discussed. These include 1 mesoscale analysis and interpretation studies 2 analysis of Army requirements for applications of weather satellite data 3 case studies of World War II, Korean or U. S. field maneuver synoptic situations, using analogs for which satellite data are available 4 investigations of methods for determining weather affecting enemy operations 5 procedures for field use of meteorological satellite data and 6 operational guide preparation. Examples of the types of analyses being prepared for the tasks concerned with mesoscale studies, case studies, and weather affecting enemy operations are presented and discussed. A rather complete description of the applicability of satellite data to Army meteorological requirements is presented and outlines the capabilities of the satellite to observe various meteorological parameters such as, wind, temperature, and visibility.
