Southern Region Subseries

The National Weather Service Southern Region (SR) subseries provides an informal medium for the documentation and quick dissemination of results not appropriate, or not yet ready, for formal publication. The series is used to report on work in progress, to describe technical procedures and practices, or to relate progress to a limited audience. These Technical Memoranda will report on investigations devoted primarily to regional and local problems of interest, mainly to personnel, and hence will not be widely distributed.

Papers 1 through 34 are in the former series, ESSA Technical Memoranda, Southern Region Technical Memoranda (SRTM); papers 35 through 51 are in the former series, ESSA Technical Memoranda, Weather Bureau Technical Memoranda (WBTM). Beginning with 52, the papers are now part of the series, NOAA Technical Memoranda NWS. Papers 1 through 34 are out of print.

Beginning with 36, the papers are available from the National Technical Information Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, VA 22161. Documents may be purchased from NTIS (Phone: 703-605-6000 or 800-553-6847). Order by accession number shown in parentheses at end of each entry.

ESSA Technical Memoranda

Prior to 1971, publications in this series were designated SRTM 1 through 34 and WBTM SR 35 through 51. Titles and authors of those Technical Memoranda are listed on the inside covers of all Technical Memoranda in the Southern Region subseries prior to NWS-SR-155.
