The topics discussed include the following: Turbulent flow definition through Reynolds stress measurements; Change of intensity in cloud systems associated with easterly perturbations as they move over areas of differing water temperature; Mesoscale analyses using radar and micro-meteorological measurements; Studies of mesoscale air-sea interaction; Tropical rainfall patterns; and Numerical modeling of the microdynamics of warm cumulus.
