Abstract:

The report attempts to consolidate all pertinent information involving operational interpretation of meteorological satellite data within a single volume. Accordingly, it extracts, integrates, and summarizes material available in the literature and technical reports through early 1966. The report is written specifically for the use of Army field and supporting meteorological personnel who have the responsibility for 1 providing weather data and information to field commanders 2 predictions for areas ranging in size from very localized ones to those that might be encompassed by a field Army operation and 3 advising field commanders as to the probable effects of existing and foreseeable weather on Army Plans and Operations. The topics considered in Volume I include applicability of weather satellite data to Army requirements and interpretation techniques for 1 personnel having no significant weather training 2 personnel with significant but non- professional training and experience and 3 professional meteorologists. Volume II presents a brief discussion of orbital considerations and detailed techniques for data acquisition and geographical location.
