Abstract : A statistical analysis of surface and upper air rawinsonde data is presented for Jallen Site, White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. Atmospheric parameters covered for the layer from the surface to 100,000 feet above mean sea level are: wind, temperature, pressure, density, moisture, index of refraction and freezing level. Upper air climatological information is based on the period of observation from 1962-1971; while the surface data, in general, spans 1963-1972. (Author)
