Abstract: The problem of automatic recognition and interpretation of the sodar facsimile pattern is considered in this paper. In the proposed method, the basic pattern shapes such as flat-top, spike, bulge, plume, gradual increment and decrement are at first recognized from the digitized facsimile records. The information of these shapes are then combined with some quantitative information such as average echo height and spike peak height to obtain climatological interpretation and stability classification of the atmosphere. To incorporate climatological interpretation in the algorithm, knowledge of meteorological expert has been utilized. Since the sodar operates round the clock and generates enormous data, this work can reduce the burden of manual examination. Practical applications of the work include, among others, aviation control and air-pollution monitoring.
