Quantitative Weather Impacts: An Integrated Weather Effects Decision Aid Impact Magnitude Gradation Scheme and Friendly Versus Threat Delta Advantage

Report No. ARL-TR-6539
Authors: Richard J. Szymber and Terry C. Jameson
Date/Pages: August 2013; 60 pages
Abstract: A fielded, rules-based weather effects decision support tool (DST) is limited in the detail of its display and the means by which it assesses the severity of the meteorological impacts. A prototype DST is described in this report that: (1) adds significant granularity to the weather impacts display; (2) accounts for the magnitude of the forecast weather parameters; and (3) allows for a quantitative comparison between friendly and enemy forces as to which side will be most impacted by adverse weather conditions.
