Abstract:

The problem of delineating and forecasting cloudiness in the aerial refueling layer from 15,000 to 20,000 ft is considered. Previous investigations of clouds at mid-tropospheric levels are reviewed. Preliminary charts of the seasonal frequency of unsuitable conditions for refueling in the layer from 15,000 to 20,000 ft are presented for the Northern Hemisphere north of 20 N. Author
