Abstract:

This range reference atmosphere RRA is a statistical model derived from upper air observations of the atmosphere from 0 to 30 km over the Nellis range complex. The data used to create this document was from Desert Rock KDRA , about 50 NM west Nellis AFB. The RRA provides tabulations of monthly and annual means, standard deviations, and skewness coefficients for wind speed, pressure, temperature, density, water vapor pressure, virtual temperature, and dew point temperature. IT also gives means 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.
