The program was initiated with a three-phased effort The development and use of instrumentation to measure the electromagnetic signature of certain weather phenomena clear air turbulence, thunderstorms, tornadoes in airborne and ground-based laboratories. The investigation of pattern recognition in the total data acquisition program sferics, severe weather, existing meteorological information. The data analysis and application to identify indicators for probability of specific phenomena, to determine possible trigger mechanisms which induce the phenomena, and to define techniques for possible modification-abatement, diversion, or intensification of the phenomena. The development of one or more simple airborne instrument packages which can be put in any aircraft for short term measurement of the severity of weather immediately ahead.
