Abstract : The progress and results of the research accomplished during the year ending September 30, 1961, is presented. An evaluation of the streak camera as a raindrop sizing device is presented. Results of separating the raindrop data according to upper air stability are reviewed. The operations of the cameras at Island Beach, New Jersey; Franklin, North Carolina; and Mt. Withington, New Mexico, are summarized. One of the New Mexico storms which produced hail is examined in detail. (Author)
