From the foreward: "Operational purposes of climatology were essentially an outgrowth of army actions in the course of global warfare II. presently after that conflict there has been a flurry of statements and guides which brought up the accomplishments for martial reasons. . . . It (climatic issue) is an element with expanding development at the stability sheets. Operations in marginal parts, migration to extra favorable locales, distribution of recent goods, including better emphasis on reliable making plans, strength a sophisticated research of climate difficulties upon the industrialist and his meteorological experts. one of the new features is the economic enlargement into heretofore moderately settled or underdeveloped areas. in lots of of those weather is an important factor."

MAY 1957 W. W. iv. Wind. The principal effects of wind in yards and terminals are found in the design and operation of humps. The height of hump should include some additional allowance to compensate for head winds which retard hard rolling cars. The retarders should also have sufficient retarding force to stop an easy rolling car even with a tail wind helping it along. A few yards are now equipped with retarders which automatically vary the retarding effect with the speed of the car. v. Moisture.

But the fact that the Ann Arbor #4 sank while entering the northerly port of Frankfort in 1923, and that the Pere Marquette's City of Flint was driven ashore at Ludington in 1940, may show that in no part of the lake can the steamers count on avoiding the stress of winter storms. VoL. 9 Ice conditions vary greatly from year to year and in different parts of the lake. In mild winters no delays from ice are experienced. Such was the case in 1920-21, whereas in 1917-18-19 much ice formed and caused significant delays.

Most water borne operations conducted by a railroad are carried on in protected waters. Even here, however, waves become heavy enough to slow the movements of barge, car float, or ferry and make steering difficult, sometimes dangerously so. Tornadoes destroy all but the strongest structures within a relatively narrow range. Actual blockades may last only a few hours but property damage can be critical and may include trains blown off the track and fueling facilities, trestles, and other facilities damaged or destroyed.
