Satellite and Mesometeorology Research Project Reports

These reports were issued with the "classic" blue covers and bound with staples and blue tape. Several hundred copies of each report were produced. The first reports were from the "Mesometeorology Project" (MP, 1-28). The later reports were renamed the "Wind Research Laboratory" (WRL, 222-250) reports and issued with yellow covers; less than 50 copies of these reports were usually produced (except for 249 and 250). The last reports were hand bound with cloth tape and were issued in quantities from ten to twenty. SMRP/WRL numbers were assigned to many publications that only appeared in formal print. However, for some of these, a very small number of copies (5 – 10) were mocked up with the blue covers and distributed as preprints or reprints were printed with new page numbers and the source information moved to the cover or title page, or rewritten on the first page. In this listing, reference is made reprints only if no "official" SMRP report exists. Entries in italics were assigned but never officially published.
