Data reduction of Stormfury 1965 cloud observations made from research flight facility aircraft
An outline of work done at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution with National Science Foundation support since 1963 on cumulus convection as related to larger scale atmospheric motions is given. In addition a preliminary analysis of the meso-scale wind field as derived from aircraft Doppler wind observations taken during one day of the Stormfury 1965 operation is described. Such facts as scale and magnitude of mesoscale divergence and vertical velocity in the trades are inferred.
