Wind data may be input on cards or may be computed from radar data input on digital tape. Temperature data may be input on data cards. Layer winds are computed for selected altitudes, as are corrected temperatures. Pressure and densities are derived by using the hydrostatic equations and an initial data point from a conjunctive rawinsonde measurement. Some specially formatted data may be output to meet project requirements at WSMR. (Author)
