Abstract : By means of sensors mounted on cable cars and a telemetry system, profiles are determined for temperature, humidity, wind, air conductivity and potential gradient, against pressure as a parameter of altitude. The site of the project is the Bavarian Alps in the vicinity of Garmisch Partenkirchen, at a uniquely instrumented range. Relationships are established between vertical aerosol distribution and meteorological parameters in the region of the upper boundary of the exchange layers. Electrical conductivity measurements were also made. The report will assist in studies of transport and diffusion of material in the atmosphere, weather modification, visibility, and radar signal propagation in mountainous terrain. (Author)
