Abstract : The preliminary results of 22 balloon flights, performed in Northern Scandinavia, are presented in diagram form. No detailed discussion is given, however. The instruments flown were Geiger-Muller single counters and telescopes, scintillation counters and photometers. One balloon was flown simultanously with a Nike-Apache rocket including auroral particle and light measurements. The difficulties met using different balloon types are shortly described. (Author)
