Abstract : Atmospheric environmental test and design criteria are required in the development of vehicles which must pass through or operate in a major portion of the earth's atmosphere. Existing summaries of meteorological data have been used to derive design criteria of temperature, pressure, density, scalar wind velocity, and vector wind shear for the earth's atmosphere below 30 km in various geographic zones of the northern hemisphere. The derived criteria are recommended for preliminary use as design standards in determination of satisfactory operation of components and materials. Sufficient meteorological data are not available to derive atmospheric environmental and test design criteria for altitudes above 30 km. (Author)
