Abstract : An experimental sonde to measure fine scale temperature structure of the upper atmosphere is described and the results of an inter-comparison of this instrument with the Weather Bureau temperature sonde is presented. Analysis of the temperature structure observed with the new sonde indicates that the initial subrange in the free atmosphere must be limited to vertical scales no larger than 80 meters. (Author)
