Cloud physicists invited to Trip'77


  • Anonymous


Scientists engaged in the Thunderstorm Research International Program (Trip) conducted last summer at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida have indicated that they would like to be joined by scientists from cloud physics and cloud dynamics for summer 1977. At the 1976 AGU Fall Meeting (December 6–10, San Francisco) there were several formal scientific sessions and other informal discussions about the results of Trip 76 and plans for Trip 77. Out of these discussions recurringly came the suggestion that studies of the electrical aspects of thunderstorms would be more effective if there were concurrent studies of the internal circulations (updrafts, downdrafts, etc.) and precipitation physics.
