Abstract The following report is the joint effort of a small group working in the spring of 1969 in preparation for the workshop. Rainfall data did not arrive until late May, so the group concentrated on those features of the ecological climatolgy of the Jornada which it could consider with limited data. The report thus consists of three main parts: an analysis of the standard climatic factors that appear to limit the plants of the Jornada, an analysis of heat and moisture budgets appropriate to the cover types of the Jornada, and a preliminary estimate of the spatial and seasonal patterns of precipitation in equation form for use in a computer model. In addition to the workshop participants Hayden, Webb, Mitchell, and Bryson, the group was regularly joined by Dr. Katharina Lettau and Dr. F. Kenneth Hare whose contributions were very important.
