Abstract : The height over the ground was determined corresponding, in a given direction, to the maximum density of echoes from meteor trails which can be detected by Radar. The direction was found corresponding to the maximum rate of radio echoes. The angle of such a direction with respect to the zenith of the Radar is found to be the equivalent of 57 degrees, while preceding results gave 45 degrees. The assumption is made that the radiant distribution is uniform. (Author)
