Abstract : During the months of January, February and March of 1964, continuous observations of wind and transmission were collected from DCA mesonetwork stations for five data periods characterized by low cloud, fog, and precipitation. These data were further supplemented by mesonet pressure observations at half-hourly intervals, hourly observations of weather from United States Weather Bureau stations and by facsimile surface charts. Continuous observations of temperature and dewpoint temperature were also available from several mesonet stations for one episode. These data provide the first opportunity to study the space scale and movement of transmission fields for station spacing of 0.8-76.0 miles. (Author)
