EQUIVALENT WINDS FOR NORTH AMERICAN AIR ROUTES AT HEIGHTS OF 5000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, 30,000, 40,000 AND 53,000 FEET (Review in Geophysics no. 3)

Equivalent headwinds or equivalent winds are computed for about 2000 routes over strategic air routes. The seasonal mean equivalent wind and its standard deviation and the annual 50-, 75- and 85-per cent reliability equivalent winds are tabulated. Route winds are computed for the 20,000-, 30, 000-, 40,000- and 53,000-foot levels.An IBM 7090 program was used to compute the equivalent winds.
