Abstract: The trials of an aerologist are many. His reputation is a much at stake when he is forecasting good weather for the admiral’s golf game as when he analyzes the weather conditions expected for a large-scale amphibious landing. Every attempt is made to make a weather forecast as accurate as possible. The aerologist employs all available devices and techniques to increase the accuracy of his forecast. Of recent years, radar has been one of the most valuable aids to the forecaster. Before the magic of radar aids can be thoroughly appreciated, some of the problems confronting the forecaster must be understood.
