Abstract:

Analyses of mean monthly upper-tropospheric winds for the 200-, 250- and 300-mb levels are presented for the eastern and central Pacific region. Analyses are based on 9 years of PIREP winds measured on commercial jet aircraft as well as rawins from fixed stations. The upper troposphere is discussed in terms of its major features and their changes from month to month.
