Abstract : Investigation of the conditions for the development of turbulence near the tropopause, especially above a mountainous region, has great current significance in connection with the forthcoming flights of supersonic passenger aircraft. Near the tropopause there will be a transition zone to supersonic speed. The report discusses research on the conditions of turbulence near the tropopause above mountainous regions and simultaneous distribution of turbulence in the troposphere and the lower stratosphere.
