A number of flights were made over set tracks and heights to measure clear air turbulence in the vicinity of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. Details of the meteorological observations and flight paths, and measurements of wind, temperature and turbulence obtained from the aircraft instrumentation are presented. Wind and temperature gradients were derived for cross sections on the upwind and downwind sides of the Ranges and a comparison made of the intensity of turbulence between the two sides. Author
