Abstract : The primary interest of the meeting was in the realm of local, small-scale meteorological phenomena and problems in the tropics, specifically excluding hurricanes and typhoons, although the papers were not completely limited to those topics. The objective was to learn as much as possible about the recent results and future research plans of the U.S. Army Contractors in tropical meteorology and to benefit by the experience and special knowledge of other invited guests from the United States and abroad. Twenty papers were presented at the two-day meeting. Discussions of the papers were recorded and are included in the report. (Author)
