Abstract : This volume is the first of two depicting average conditions in the stratosphere over the northern hemisphere during the period July 1955 to July 1959. Monthly mean charts of contours and isotherms are presented for the 100-mb, 50-mb, and 25-mb levels for each of the 48 months. In addition, four-year composite means are presented for each of the twelve months of the year at each level. The maps clearly show how the monthly mean pattern for a winter month can vary considerably from year to year, wheras the pattersn for the summer months vary but little from year to year. (Author)
