The papers presented on this page have been accepted for publication in a special SALSA edition of the Journal of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (JAFM). The date of publication is expected to be in late 2000.

The purpose of this web page is to disseminate the information contained in the papers to the scientific community as quickly as possible. The papers are presented here in the format required by the JAFM for review, not in final publication format. Tables, figures, and captions are not included within the text of the paper, but can be found at the end of the text, or in a separate document.

Each paper has been converted into a PDF (Portable Document Format) document for ease of distribution. Adobe's Acrobat Reader is required to view PDF files. The reader is available at no charge from Adobe(Download).

In some cases, a separate PDF document contains tables/figures for the paper. Some symbols within individual papers may not display properly. Display problems may occur when an author used special character fonts that could not be embedded into the PDF document, and when those fonts are not installed on the reader's computer. We expect this problem to be minimal and not to degrade the content of the papers.

Please assume that format anomalies in the papers are the result of the rapid publication process and not errors by the authors.
