Abstract:

Computer programs for converting data from punched paper tape to magnetic tape, and for decoding, errpr-checking, and summarizing the digital weather observations of the Federal Aviation Agency Mesonetwork surrounding Atlantic City, N.J. were developed and tested. The objectives and scope of these programs are described and sample outputs are illustrated. Twenty-five summer-season data samples from 5 to 8 mesonetwork stations were processed. Brief summaries are given of the results of additional investigations carried out under the present project and previously described in other reports. The investigations were studies of space and time variations in transmission along runways at John F. Kennedy International Airport, case studies of fog and low cloud in the Washington, D. C. Mesonetwork, and studies of radar forecasts of visual range in snow.
