Abstract:

Research on vertically integrated boundary-layer winds applicable in Air Force paradrop operations required wind and temperature data taken on tall higher than 250 ft instrumented towers. The report represents findings from a search for such data. It provides an annotated listing of tall towers from which winds have been measured. The annotation consists of the following items when known sensors used and their height time periods over which measurements are averaged data collection periods, format, and availability other parameters concurrently measured on the tower other boundary layer observations concurrently taken within a radius of about 20 mi a listing of some studies using the data and other pertinent information.
