Abstract : An expedition was conducted during the periods 25 June through 23 July 1966 and 16-31 May 1967 by the Department of Physics of the Atmosphere of Tashkent University. The flights were made by a YaK-12M aircraft equipped with a meteorograph and other instruments from the Sergeli airport in the neighborhood of Chardara village at an altitude of 0.9-1.0 km in the standard atmosphere. Flights were made over the semiarid region at altitudes up to 2.5-3.0 km. The spatial distribution of zones of increased aircraft turbulence was determined; the maximum was at altitudes of 0.5-1.0 km. In this layer the accelerations attained 0.45 G in spring and 0.7 G in summer. (Author)
