Pagination or Media Count:
Data from the Meteorological Rocket Network and other sources, in addition to high-level rawinsonde observations have been employed to analyze a series of 5-, 2-, and 0.4-mb. charts. Methods employed for processing the various types of data as well as the analysis procedure are described. The broadscale analyses, primarily covering the North American and adjacent ocean areas, are presented for each week of 1964, the first year of the International Years of the Quiet Sun period. A brief discussion of the circulation and temperature patterns in the middle and upper stratosphere as indicated by the charts is also presented.
