Abstract:

Analytic formulae are presented for modelling climatic mission success indicators for joint ceiling and visibility categories from a knowledge of the separate unconditional probabilities for these two parameters for the same location with zero time lag. Analytic formulations are similarly presented which extend the modelling capabilities to incorporate considerations of time differentials and distance separations. A method is presented for compacting the RUSSWO statistics for ceilings and visibilities by a factor of approximately 1 to 100 for ready manual or computer reference. Author
