Abstract : The primary purpose of this book is to summarize the results of aerological investigations of air-flow structure in the atmospheric boundary layer, which have been carried out by the staff of the Main Geophysical Observatory (GGO) both at its Voyekovo facility near Leningrad and on numerous field projects in various parts of the Soviet Union. The book is intended for the use of specialists working on a wide range of theoretical and practical problems related to atmospheric physics- construction engineering, problems related to atmospheric physics- construction engineering, aviation, agriculture, weather forecasting, air pollution, wind-power engineering- and as a reference for research workers and graduate students in meteorology, climatology, and atmospheric physics.
