Abstract : Detailed wind and temperature data were gathered in an atmospheric cylinder 2000 feet in diameter and 200 feet in height. About 25 percent of the 216 sets of observations were considered anomalous because of unusual flow patterns or unusual shears. Vertical shears as great as 13 knots at 200 feed were observed. These data illustrate space and time variations which can be expected in the winds and temperatures near Land Test Area C-52 (South) during early mornings in the summer and illustrate the need for additional data gathering and analysis.
