Abstract

The integration of satellite and conventional data can lead to an improved meteorological analysis and interpretation. Procedures for such a data integration are suggested. The advantages that can be gained from this data integration and time-tested techniques, such as continuity, are demonstrated by case examples both for areas of sparse and relatively abundant conventional data. It is shown that, over data sparse areas, the techniques provide a means of obtaining at least a qualitative analysis where none could (or should) be made otherwise. Even for areas of relative data abundance, the techniques can provide improved analyses at the synoptic as well as smaller scales.

Abstract

Index of refraction data measured by a Crain microwave refractometer mounted in a Boeing 707 jet aircraft on two flights during August 1959 are presented. Emphasis is placed on the horizontal portions of the flights at the 150-mb level, but climbout and descent data are also given. Comparisons are made with theoretical data and index data computed from radiosondes. Some conclusions are drawn about the variability of the index of refraction in the lower stratosphere.

Abstract

Winds were measured in and above a tropical rain forest in northern Colombia. Wind speeds below the canopy are only 1 to 5 per cent of that measured 50 ft above the canopy. Wind directions below the canopy appear to be disorganized.
