Abstract:

Meteorological conditions in the stratosphere over North America from mid-January to midFebruary, 1957 are presented. This analysis outlines briefly the assumptions and procedures being used to compute various meteorological parameters at half-day intervals at a series of grid points over North America and the adjacent North Atlantic. Distributions of height, temperature, relative vorticity and vertical motion at the 100-mb surface are displayed at intervals of 48 hr throughout the period, and the evolution of these distributions is discussed.
