Abstract : The report is made up of extracts representing documents held in the Balloon Technology Data Base. It is presented in two separately bound volumes: Volume I - Report Extracts and Volume II - Index. The extracts in Volume I are arranged in no particular order other than serially by accession number (B-XXX followed by a letter indicating the classification of the source document). Readers with inquiries regarding a specific document should be certain to cite the accession number in order to clearly identify the document. Where several parts make up a whole as in the proceedings of a symposium, the overall proceedings have been assigned an accession number and the Table of Contents is included in the extract. However, selected papers of particular interest have also been extracted and assigned a decimal number - B-XXX.X. Each extract has been indexed by authors and appropriate terms. Although no Thesaurus has been developed, an effort has been made to maintain consistency in the use of terms. The citations accompanying each term are complete; it was thought that this would give the searcher more information upon which to base his decisions than would a simple accession number or title.
