3000 Dynamic Meter Ideal Charts Corresponding to the Ideal Surface Types for Zones 3 and 4: Progress Report


Jamele, Patrick Robert and Lewis, Charles Hadley (1946) 3000 Dynamic Meter Ideal Charts Corresponding to the Ideal Surface Types for Zones 3 and 4: Progress Report. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/e9qp-1k67.


This project was initiated in order to determine the correlation between the 3000 dynamic meter charts and corresponding surface charts which were used in formulating the ideal surface types as described in Report No. 2 CITAAF Research Unit (Project #32) October 31, 1945 entitled: "Preparation of a Catalogue of Synoptic Weather Sequences for North America, January 1899 through June 1939."

The patterns established by this work provide an additional aid in identification of weather types as well as giving some indication of wind directions and velocities to be expected aloft with a given surface type. These patterns reduced to slides for projection on a screen can also be used as a visual aid in presenting the characteristics of the various ideal types and especially to illustrate the steering effect of the upper winds.
