Abstract : A statistical analysis of upper air data is presented for White Sands Desert Site, White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. Atmospheric parameters covered, for the layer 6,000 to 100,000 feet above mean sea level, are: wind, temperature, pressure, density, moisture, index of refraction, and freezing level. This climatological information is based on the period of observation from 1961-1967. (Author)
