Abstract : The IRIG Range Reference Atmosphere, which is presented in this document, is one in a series to be published by the Inter-Range Instrumentation Group/Meteorological Working Group. Part I contains an explanation of the basic data, computational procedures, and the resulting values tabulated for altitude intervals between mean sea level and 30 km altitude. Monthly and annual thermodynamic values and wind quantities are tabulated. The thermodynamic quantities are height (gpm), pressure (kg f m/2), pressure (mb), temperature (K), virtual temperature (K), density (g m/3), speed of sound (m sec/1), relative humidity (%), and vapor pressure (mb) tabulated at 250 m intervals of geometric altitude. The wind quantities are scalar wind, zonal and meridional component values (m/sec) for eleven cumulative percentage frequency levels tabulated at 1 km intervals from 0 to 27 or 30 km altitude. A separate document for Part I will be issued for each of the several IRIG Range Reference Atmospheres. (Author)
