Abstract : A method is presented for the estimation of the temperature profile, given measured surface values of temperature and pressure, using conditional factors which are functions of statistical meteorological parameters. Tables of mean temperature profiles, and of the conditional factors from which temperature profiles may be estimated, are presented for several sites around Australia. These tables can be used when, for example, radiosonde data are not available. This work was carried out at Weapons Systems Research Laboratory in response to Army Office Research Request 1139/78 - Task ARM 78/060 entitled Artillery Use of Meteorological Statistics (AUMS).
