Three regression techniques for the calculation of ballistic winds using satellite infrared spectrophotometer SIRS data are evaluated. Experiments testing the derived methods are carried out using two SIRS-A data sets and one SIRS-B data set. In all three cases, the data sets are divided into a large dependent sample used to derive the regression equations and smaller independent sample for testing the equations validity. One method, that of geostrophic calculations using regression derived D values of ballistic geopotential height is found to be superior to the other methods. Author
