Abstract:

From three Aerobee-100 and Aerobee-150 rockets launched at Fort Churchill, Canada, in September and October, 1960, high resolution photographs of a vigorous low-pressure disturbance were obtained at altitudes up to 140 miles. These photographs have provided a basis for studying cloud brightness and have shown the advisability using similar rockets in conjunction with weather satellites. Infrared film and a Wratten 88-A filter produced the best pictures, with a camera setting of 1500 second at f8.0.
