Abstract : An analysis was made of the velocity characteristics of some clear-air dot angels as determined using a simple Doppler radar technique. In addition to inferring the probable nature of the dot angels, an attempt was made to assess the accuracy with which populations of dot angels can serve as wind tracers.
