Abstract

Robert M. Losey Award to F.W. Reichelderfer The recipient of the Robert M. Losey Award for 1942 is F. W. Reichelderfer, Chief of the U.S. Weather Bureau. It was given for his pioneering work and continuing activity in advancing the science and practice of meteorology as applied to aeronautics, with particular recognition of the development under his direction of the network and system of upper air sounding by radiosonde. In the past four years, under Commander Reichelderfer's direction, many noteworthy developments have been made in the activities of the U.S. Weather Bureau. The meteorologic services for civil airways of the United States and Alaska have been greatly expanded so that there are now approximately 650 surface airways weather reporting stations, 125 pilot balloon stations for observing winds at flight levels, and 50 radiosonde stations for determining the atmospheric elements that are significant in direct air-mass analysis for airways weather forecasting. Extensive use of upper air observa- tions by the radiosonde, an instrument that automatically transmits weather data by radio as it is carried aloft by a c*nr\ balloon, has been an important element in the more £/!/ y CTCff 2> ay%J general use of advanced airmass analysis in the Bureau's regular practice. Improvements have been made in other instruments and in the engineering techniques of weather forecasting.
