A reference atmosphere is a statistical model of the earths atmosphere, derived from upper air observations over a specific location. The individual RRA is the authoritative source for upper-atmosphere climatology over the launch and recovery site for which it has been prepared. The RRAs are used to plan, evaluate, and establish environmental launch constraints for aerospace vehicles launched from a particular location.
