Abstract:

This report describes a computer software system called the CloudFog Analysis system CFAS, which was designed to be a subsystem of the U. S. Armys Experimental Prototype Automatic Meteorological System EPAMS. The function of the CFAS is to create and maintain information on cloud cover, fog and weather in near real-time on a mesoscale grid network covering a given geographical area. The data sources which the CFAS uses include teletype network transmissions of surface and upper air observations and cloud cover prognostications. State of the art techniques in automated meteorological data analysis were adapted and utilized in the CFAS. An overall system description as well as detailed descriptions of its component modules, principally via the medium of annotated flow diagrams, are presented. Author
