This report summarises the activities undertaken by the US Army Mesomet Panel during the contract period. For the period to 31st March, 1993, nine interim reports were submitted and these contain full details of these activities. For the final period, 1st April - 31st December 1993, a more detailed account is provided here and includes, as Annex 2, the report of the Panels final meeting in Munster, Germany, 9th-10th September, 1993. Its executive summary contains five important recommendations, all directed towards the future modelling activities at ARL. These arise from the lessons learned from the Mesomet Model Comparison Project undertaken during the contract period and subsequent Mesomet Workshop held in El Paso in June, 1992. Section 3 sets out what the Panel feels have been its achievements during the contract period, one In which considerable changes in policy direction occured, some of which will have been influenced by the Panels advice. Attention is drawn to the role of the Panel in involving the wider mesomet modelling community in ASLs activities, particularly through the Mesomet Model Comparison Project and El Paso Workshop. A major publication arising from these activities is a Mesometeorology Modelling monograph to be published by the American Meteorological Society in 1994. This is described in Section 4.
