Abstract : Research on vertically integrated boundary-layer winds applicable in Air Force paradrop operations required wind and temperature data taken on tall (higher than 250 ft) instrumented towers. The report represents findings from a search for such data. It provides an annotated listing of tall towers from which winds have been measured. The annotation consists of the following items when known: sensors used and their height; time periods over which measurements are averaged; data collection periods, format, and availability; other parameters concurrently measured on the tower; other boundary layer observations concurrently taken within a radius of about 20 mi; a listing of some studies using the data; and other pertinent information.
