Abstract:

Safety and international considerations have led the Air Force to recognize the need for predetermined trajectories to program balloon operations for periods when weather conditions exceed certain specified minimums. This pamphlet presents a description of balloon operations and stratospheric forecasting techniques as they have evolved at Vernalis, California. It should assist those meteorologists who require familiarization in the complex art of balloon trajectory forecasting. Author
