Abstract : The report consists of three separate reports on mesometeorological studies. Two of the reports make use of data gathered over the Flagstaff mesometeorological network during the summers of 1960 and 1961. The growth rate of orographic cumulonimbi was determined by both surface and aerial photogrammetry. A set of equations were developed for computing eddy viscosity and diffusion coefficients within rotating and nonrotating convective currents. Energy computations were made for both cumuli and cumulonimbi. The third report summarizes the various explanations for the high pressure beneath thunderstorms and presents one more contribution to the controversy. (Author)
