Abstract
A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL FOR PREDICTING CLOUD COVER, FOG, AND HAZE UNDER BATTLEFIELD CONDITIONS IS DEVELOPED. THE PROGRAM UTILIZES REAL TIME METEOROLOGICAL DATA (WHEN AVAILABLE) TO PREDICT METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS OVER IRREGULAR TERRAIN. THE COMPUTER PROGRAM IS RELATIVELY SIMPLE AND EXECUTES QUICKLY ON A VARIETY OF COMPUTER SYSTEMS. PROBLEMS REQUIRING SEVERAL THOUSAND NODES CAN BE SOLVED ON A PERSONAL COMPUTER. THE NUMERICAL MODEL SOLVES THE REDUCED FORM OF THE 3-D GOVERNING EQUATIONS FOR ATMOSPHERIC MOTION IN TERRAIN FOLLOWING COORDINATES. PARTICULATE SEEDING OF THE PROBLEM DOMAIN (BATTLEFIELD) CAN BE SIMULATED TO ASCERTAIN THE EFFECTS OF DISSIPATING (OR ENHANCING) THE FORMATION OF FOG AND HAZE.
