Certain intensive investigations into the nature of thunderstorms in the United States have resulted in a new model of thunderstorm structure, life cycle and thermodynamics. Thunderstorms and their effects have been investigated by airplanes, radar, surface micronetworks and swarms of balloons. Some of the more significant aspects of these measurements are described. A comprehensive final report will be published soon by the U. S. Government.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1949.tb01269.x
