The National Severe Storms Laboratory, Norman, Oklahoma, in cooperation with other government groups, and with units of commerce and education, seeks to increase understanding of severe local storms, to improve methods for detecting these storms and for measuring associated meteorological parameters, and to promote the development and applications of weather radar.

Reports by the cooperating groups are printed in this series to facilitate prompt communication of information to vitally interested parties. These reports are not formal scientific publications.

The NSSL reports continue the sequence established by the U.S. Weather Bureau National Severe Storms Project, Kansas City, Missouri.
