Fourteen weather data analyses applied to military problems are presented. These are selected from past, hitherto unpublished, contributions to RAND Corporation research projects. Emphasis is divided between (1) statistical presentations of weather variables that affect aircraft operations — mainly ceiling and visibility, jointly and independently, and (2) model-generated statistics of atmospheric parameters that affect visual and infrared sensor systems — visible contrast and infrared transmission, and target detection probabilities. Calculations are for the NATO theater with heavy emphasis on Germany.
