Report No. ARL-TR-1883
Authors: Passner, Jeffrey E.
Date/Pages: May 1999; 61 pages
Abstract: To assist the staff weather officer and enhance weather predictions in the battlefield, the Atmospheric Sounding Program (ASP) has been designed to furnish a series of weather outputs with an emphasis on weather hazards such as turbulence, icing, clouds, thunderstorms, and surface visibility. The ASP is initialized by either upper air observations or output from the Battlescale Forecast Model (BFM). The BFM produces a 24 hour forecast: thus, the weather hazard is placed into the database and can be displayed for the 24 hour forecast period.
