SEVERE STORMS LABORATORY REPORTS
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.
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.
reports continue the sequence established by the U.S. Weather Bureau National
Severe Storms Project, Kansas City, Missouri.
