Abstract:

This report presents a first approximation of the apparent three-Sigma monthly extremes, as a function of altitude, for ambient temperature and density on a global basis. The values obtained are based on the climatological temperature and density data for ten observing stations located between 8 and 77 degrees north latitude. The percentage deviations of the three-Sigma global temperature and density data from that represented by the ARDC Model Atmosphere, 1956, are also given as a function of altitude. The information presented is intended for application with missile design and performance studies of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency. Author
