The automatic meteorological instrument, the Frigorimeter, and analyses of data from its use in temperate zones are presented for climatological values and Army usefulness. Reduction of data and presentation of results are descriptive of boundary-meterology in a temperate environment. Historical and theoretical review of the terms and units of measurements for the Frigorimeter together with the results of the data reduction has led to three recommendations 1 Use of the term wind chill, also include T-W-P-R factor temperature, wind, precipitation, and radiation as an inclusive and descriptive term. 2 Use of the electrical term kilowatts per meter squared per hour as the actual variable in the sensor instrumentation rather than the bioclimatological limited term kilocalorie. 3 Use of the term Frigorimeter Climatograph as a more inclusive descriptive word for the sensor rather than only the coldness term. Sixty-four months of data from the Belmar, N. J. and Natick, Mass. areas have been reduced and analyzed. These data recommend the instrument as an effective and efficient sensor for acquiring boundary-layer composite values of wind chill T-W-P-R factor environment for climatological and Army use. Author
