Exploratory study on the physical nature of certain mesostructural details in vertical wind profiles
A series of 18 balloon soundings made at approximately 45-minute intervals on 3 January 1963 from Cape Canaveral, using FPS-16 radar for tracking, revealed certain structural details in the vertical wind profiles which - - - due to their persistence in time and space - - have to be considered as atmospheric perturbations and not as instrument noise. This report contains a brief and exploratory study on the possible nature of these perturbations. Some of the mesostructure in the vertical wind profiles shows a certain correlation with changes in the temperature lapse rate. There is also a possibility ...
