Cumulus convection and its interaction with larger scales of motion
MetadataShow full item record
The data reduction procedures used on the observations obtained from the ESSA Research Flight Facility aircraft during the Stormfury 1965 operation is described. The results to be obtained eventually are cloud liquid water content, volume median drop size, turbulent vertical velocity, and buoyancy fluctuations in cloud passes made by the aircraft.
