Systems possibilities for an early GARP experiment



COSPAR Working Group 6 (Application of Space Experiments to Meteorology; Morris Tepper, Chairman) completed a special report on ‘Systems Possibilities for an Early GARP Experiment.’ The report was requested by the ICSUWMO Joint Organizing Committee for GARP (JOC) and presented to the committee at their recent meeting in Princeton, New Jersey.

Twenty-four technical experts from seven countries (France, USA, USSR Federal Republic of Germany, German Democratic Republic, Japan, United Kingdom), WMO and JOC met in London in October 1968 to review the development status and applicability to GARP of various observing techniques and to decide what techniques could be combined in the mid-1970's to provide observational capability for a large-scale but not necessarily complete GARP experiment.
