Abstract : The report summarizes the weather conditions that were encountered during two of the three weeks (9-21 July 1967) comprising the Army/Environmental Science Service Administration (ESSA) summer program on atmospheric electricity held at Flagstaff, Arizona, in July 1967. Short as the program was, it contained an excellent example of the 'pulsing' effect of the monsoon. In addition to the meteorological summary, the report includes a discussion of flight and weather experience, suggesting a relationship between high electrical fields and the presence of ice in the atmosphere, whether in hailstone or crystal form.
