The AA. have developed a technique for estimating the condensation rates of convective storms using satellite measurements of cirrus anvil expansion rates and radiosonde measurements of environmental water vapor. A comparison between three cases of severe convection in Oklahoma (1976-1979) indicated that the available moisture in the lowest levels greatly affected the rain rates of the storms. (JPB).
