This research was supported by a grant from the Physical Meteorology Program, National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant ATM-9400208. Contributions to this work were made by Professors William Beasley of the University of Oklahoma and Craig Bohren of The Pennsylvania State University. The author thanks Erik Rasmussen and Jerry Straka for allowing him to pursue this research in conjunction with project VORTEX. Much of the vehicle support for VORTEX was provided by the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms under NSF Grant ATM-9120009. Additional vehicle support and guidance were provided by the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma.
