Abstract : This technical note is designed to acquaint forecasters, primarily at the detachment level, with the use of the Revised Uniform Summary of Surface Weather Observations (RUSSWO) which is prepared by the United States Air Force Environmental Technical Applications center (USAFETAC). This TN includes a brief explanation of each part of the RUSSWO together with reproductions of selected summaries. Exercises that stress procedures for extracting key climatic data are included for each reproduced climatological data summary. Some exercises introduce techniques for obtaining data that are not tabulated directly in the RUSSWO. In most cases, the page of exercises for a particular summary faces the summary to facilitate study.
