Abstract : The research was reported herein conducted during the third quarter of a contractual investigation was aimed at providing Army field units with techniques for the use of weather satellite data. Results to date for each of several tasks are discussed. These include: (1) mesoscale analysis and interpretation studies; (2) analysis of Army requirements for applications of weather satellite data; (3) case studies of World War II, Korean or U. S. field maneuver synoptic situations, using analogs for which satellite data are available; (4) investigations of methods for determining weather affecting enemy operations; (5) procedures for field use of meteorological satellite data; and (6) operational guide preparation. The research, and draft chapters of the final report, have been completed for many Tasks. For these Tasks, only a summary statement of principal results is included here. More comprehensive discussions of these completed Tasks can be found in Reports (AD-623 532, AD-627 442), and will be included in the forthcoming final report and operational guide being prepared under this contract. Brief discussions of the yet uncompleted Tasks are provided here. (Author)
