Winds-aloft measurements were made over a period of 14 days with three to four rocket probes daily, and the corresponding wind profiles were prepared. The wind-speed data are in agreement with those of various authors in other countries, especially the U. S. The shift of the prevailing wind from the winter westerly to the summer easterly was detected and partially established. The Arcas ROBIN rocketsonde is very suitable for determination of the wind up to a height of 75 km.
