Abstract : Mean monthly vertical profiles of component winds, temperature, pressure, density and moisture and presented in metric units for the surface and for each one kilometer up to and including 65 kilometers for White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. For comparison purposes, an overlap of rawinsonde and rocketsonde data is given for the 25-35 kilometer layer. Surface climatological information is based on the period of record 1951-68, while the rawinsonde and rocketsonde data span 1961-68. (Author)
