Abstract : Details of AFGWC fine mesh upper air analysis program are presented along with equations used to derive the first guess fields. The analysis technique is a method of successive corrections to the first guess field. A variable scan radius is used which maximizes details over dense data regions and which minimizes unwanted irregularities over sparse data regions. (Author)
