Abstract:

This range reference atmosphere RRA is a statistical model derived from upper-air observations of the atmosphere from 0 to 30 km over Wake Island. It provides tabulations of monthly and annual means, standard deviations, and skewness coefficients for wind speed, barometric pressure, atmospheric temperature, atmospheric density, water vapor pressure, virtual temperature, and dew point temperature. It also gives mean and standard deviation for the zonal and meridional wind components and hydrostatic model atmosphere. Methodology is included, along with graphic displays of wind statistics that can be derived from the wind data.
