Abstract:

The new Point Analysis PA process was developed to correct specific deficiencies in the previous process AFGWC Point Analysis Documentation, 1 Aug 1974. These deficiencies, identified by the 3rd Weather Wing Point Analysis Conference in March of 1976, fall into three general categories. First, the moisture modeling technique had a deficiency of moisture through the tropopause. Second, there was a lack of observed density data for the 80km to 250km region. Finally, the production process required an excessive number of manual tasks. The new PA process employs a new tropopause moisture modeling technique includes, when available, rocket sonde ROCOB observations and reduces the manual tasks to directing and quality controlling the automated process.
