Abstract : Data presented in the report is a compilation of upper air data from the surface to seventy millibars collected in January and February 1965 from twelve temporary rawinsonde stations located in southeastern Arizona in support of a ballistic wind study made by the Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory, US Army Electronics Command, Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. The area covered by the study was one hundred miles long and sixty miles wide. Twelve Rawin Set, AN/GMD-1s were deployed. The sites were chosen to provide a complete description of the wind field during cross-mountain and parallel-to-mountain situations. Upper air observations were made on sixteen different days with five observations per day. (Author)
