Abstract : Seasonal conditions of forming temperature and pressure fields in the troposphere and stratosphere, and also seasonal variations of these fields in both spheres are considered. Cartographic and graphic materials are given, in particular: charts of baric topography of the globe for winter and summer compiled by the observational data for the IGY period (AT-300, 200, 100, 50, 30, 10 mb; OT 300/1000, 100/300, 10/100 mb), new schemes of general circulation of atmosphere, atmosphere cross-sections up to 80-100 km, and other auxiliary charts and diagrams. The question of considerable winter warmings in the stratosphere of high latitudes is also discussed and the role played by the processes developing troposphere is determined. (Author)
