Abstract:

Slopes of surface of constant air density are determined from wind data gathered primarily by The Meteorological Rocket Network. These slopes are depicted as a function of altitude, latitude, season, and time of day. Where data permits, they are extended to 90 kilometers altitude. The results agree well with the known features of the density field and suggest additional characteristics of density behavior. Author
