VISIBILITY MEASUREMENTS FOR PROBABILITY FORECASTS; MCIDAS SYSTEM CONFIGURATION AND CAPABILITIES; RADIATIVE CHANGE OF SURFACE AIR TEMPERATURE

Section 1: A pilot study was carried out to assess effects of time averaging of raw measurements on short-time predictability, as part of a development program directed toward automation of short-term forecasts and of airfield observations. Section 2: The capabilities of the general basic McIDAS system are studied with the purpose of adapting it to AFGL usage. Section 3: Six tables of pertinent statistical parameters present results of a study of numerical schemes for radiactive change in surface air temperature. (Author)
