Abstract:

This report documents results of a contract to develop mesoscale cloud models and analyze data in support o such models. Results of the BIGHILL and CCOPE experiment model runds and the trasnfer and implementation of the S4CSU Cloud and Mesoscale Model at AFGL and the AFWL computer systems are documented. Operational instructions for themodel and supporting file transfer and graphical utilities are included. The NCAR graphics software systesm was modified and installed on the AFWL Cray computer. Test plots, metacode translator software, and operational instructions are provided. File transfer utilities such as kermit, and archival procedures to transfer data from the AFWL Cray, the AFGL VAX, and Zenith Z-100 personal computer are attached. Other computer models and codes described included the CUMOD microphysical model of cumulus slouds, the SNOW-II snowstorm analysis, STRT4ATEX data analysis, UND data analysis of aircraft flight tapes, and programs for anallysis of PMS-2D Particle Image Data. Geography plotting routines for use with the stratocumulus model are described and a complete plot routine library for scientific data analysis on the AFGL VAX is documented in the form of a users manual. A series of data analysis programs for use in the 1986 AFGL Melting Layer Attenuation Study Analysis is also described and documented. Keywords Cloud physics Atmosphere models.
