Abstract:

A series of meteorological measurements was made in the northern part of the Caribbean Sea, during the Spring of 1969, to characterize the Trade Wind Inversion and its effect on radio wave propagation. Among the measurements made were data collected from the sensors on the airborne platform of the USAF C-131 Convair 37812, which was provided for use on this contract. The report is a compendium of some of the airborne data, namely of the magnetic tape analog measurements of air temperature, relative humidity, and radio refractivity recorded during test flights. The values of these parameters herein are relative, not absolute. Also, no corrections have been applied. No interpretations or correlations with other data obtained on the contract are included.
