A set of atmospheric surface, tower, rawinsonde, and aircraft measurements was made at the High Energy Laser Systems Test Facility area from 24 March through 8 April 1977 in support of adaptive optics design for the Navy High Energy Laser Project Manager. These measurements consisted of optical turbulence, wind, water vapor, particulate size distribution, inversion height, air and soil surface temperature, and net radiation. Presented in this data report are plots and selected tabular listings of the surface, tower, and rawinsonde data. The aircraft measurements of optical turbulence are included in an appendix.
