Abstract : This Report covers the study of profiles derived from the stepped grey scale radar maps. The profiles, which are plots of the distribution of area and/or flux of precipitation with intensity as a function of height for a total area of 20,000 sq nmi, give useful data for relation to synoptic meteorology. The results of measurements of snowfall rate by measuring depth increments on the ground by optical attenuation in the falling snow are reported. (Author)
