Rocket-borne ozone-temperature sondes were used to monitor ozone, temperature and wind field on three different days. The results obtained show that at one time during this study, meridional and zonal flow did undergo a change, and on that occasion, the ozone structure changed to a three-peak distribution. Possible contribution from the vertical motions in the atmosphere is considered. (Author)
