Abstract : This report contains an account of the Mesoscale Panel's activities and a list of its recommendations to ASL. (Army Atmospheric Science Lab.) The Panel's work has been concentrated into the mesometeorology workshop held at the Risoe National Lab. Roskilde, Denmark, 12th-15th May, 1987, 2 Panel Meetings (Risoe, 14th-15th May, Sept. 14th-16th, 1988. This report includes the report of the last Panel Meeting, together with a separate list of its recommendation. Recommendations R1-R9 reflect the Panel's concern with the status and direction of the mesoscale modelling activities at ASL and propose radical changes which must be implemented if the Army's needs are to make effective use of modern developments elsewhere in this rapidly developing area of research. Recommendations R10-R13 relate to the project WIND database and reflect the importance the Panel attaches to making this data as widely and speedily accessible as possible. The excellent work of the field phase now needs to be followed up by exploitation of the data by the wider commitments of atmospheric mesoscale modelling if the Army is to benefit from modelling advances elsewhere and improved predictions of mesoscale phenomena.
