Abstract:

A case study in the utilization of stereoscopic photogrammetry in the investigation of cloud dynamics is presented. Analysis of a 30-minute period in the life of an orographic cloud shows a continuous series of turrets, each lasting approximately eight minutes, with peaks reaching 24,000 to 26,000 feet MSL. The methods of analysis and data reduction used are described, and the computer program written to perform the analysis computations is presented in the appendix. Author
