Title:1972 Operational Report for METROMEX
Author(s):Lowry, William P.
urban areas
Abstract:Days on which prearranged observational activities were conducted simultaneously by all cooperators present are termed METRODATA Days. In 1972 there were four such scheduled days: July 20, August 4, and August 10-11. In addition, August 3 was added to the list on short notice, making a total of five days on which sets of descriptive data are especially complete. August 3 and the afternoon of August 11 exhibited convective shower activity, the other three days being generally dry and stable. It should be noted that during these winter periods the University of Chicago group and the Illinois State Water Survey group were both making observations in the St. Louis area: January 19 - February 4 and February 22 - March 4. By its nature, the Chicago program consisted of "special observations" centered on flights of their Lockheed aircraft. The wintertime program of the Water Survey consisted of "regular observations" obtained from year-around operation of roughly half of the surface network of precipitation gages and hygrothermographs.
