  • Description:
    "The purpose of this study was to compare ASOS and standard manual observations to see how well each method performed during a complex weather situation. The data presented in this paper show that ASOS is a capable weather observing system within the range of its instrumentation. However, there are instances where an analysis of the entire celestial dome is necessary to get an accurate representation of critical weather conditions. This is especially true when the weather phenomena are not directly overhead. Therefore, it will ultimately be up to the user of the system to access and integrate other sources of information such as Doppler weather radar, lightning detection systems, satellite data, and pilot reports to more fully discern what types of weather conditions are actually occurring"--Page 6.
