Abstract : The paper examines studies of vertical wind shears in arctic-front, polar-front, and subtropical jet streams made in winter and summer in the period 1957 through 1959. Calculations are made of the distribution of frequencies of various gradations of vertical wind shears above and below jet streams and the relations between the wind force on the jet-stream axis and the vertical wind shears are plotted.
