Jastrow, R., and M. Halem, 1973: Simulation studies and the design of the First GARP Global Experiment. Bull. Amer. Meteorol. Soc., 54, no. 1, 13-21, doi:10.1175/1520-0477-54.1.13.

Simulation studies have played an increasingly important role in planning for the First GARP Global Experiment (FGGE) during the last two years by providing information on the meteorological impact of various untested or incompletely tested elements of the GARP observing system. The studies are not concerned directly with the research objectives of GARP, but are intended to provide information to FGGE planners on the capabilities of alternative systems for meeting a specific FGGE requirement. The simulation studies also provide a valuable input to cost-effectiveness studies by indicating tradeoffs of one possible type of observing platform against another — such as constant-level balloons vs. buoys. These tradeoffs can lead to major gains in research yield per dollar of expenditure on the observing system.
