Abstract:

Fourteen weather data analyses applied to military problems are presented. These are selected from past, hitherto unpublished, contributions to Rand Corporation research projects. Emphasis is divided between 1 statistical presentations of weather variables that affect aircraft operations--mainly ceiling and visibility, jointly and independently--and 2 model-generated statistics of atmospheric parameters that affect visual and infrared transmission, and target detection probabilities. Calculations are for the NATO theater with heavy emphasis on Germany. Author
