Abstract : A number of studies attempting to employ meteorological parameters from areas of reliable data to obtain better estimates of the upper level wind field over areas of sparse or unreliable data are summarized. The methods included in these studies involve linear regression techniques, stratified climatology and the extrapolation of synoptic features. The basic concepts of the methods are discussed and the results obtained through application of the methods briefly reviewed. A number of conclusions and recommendations for future study are also made. It is noted that the most encouraging results are obtained from the stratified climatology method. (Author)
