Abstract:

The Air Force Geophysics Laboratory AFGL has been tasked by the Space and Missiles System Organization SAMSO to provide meteorological analysis in support of the Advanced Ballistic Reentry Systems ABRES Program. The primary objectives of the work carried out under this contract have been to assist AFGL in 1 the analysis of surface, upper air, and satellite data leading to the computation of liquid water content profiles, 2 the analysis of special observational data obtained from aircraft flight experiments, 3 computer analysis of radar data, 4 development of display techniques for the AFGL Liquid Water Content Analyzer, 5 the evaluation of the uncertainties in the estimation of hydrometeor mass concentrations using radar and aircraft measurements, and 6 the assessment of thin cirrus cloud over the tropical Pacific.
