Abstract : The report summarizes the field observation program on or near Barbados in the summer of 1969, in conjunction with the Barbados oceanographic and meteorological experiment (BOMEX). A preliminary catalog of the data collected is included from the Sub-cloud Instrument Telemetry System, constant level, free-rise balloons and the data taken from towers on Barbados. Three independent investigations are included as appendices: (1) A Note on an Improved Quasi-Lagrangian Advective Scheme for Primitive Equations. (2) Optimum Influence Radii for Interpolation with the Method of Successive Corrections. (3) A Note of Boundary Layer Wind Structure Above Sloping Terrain. (Author)
