Abstract
Comparisons were made and statistical analyses performed incorporating wind data from a 50-MHz atmospheric profiling clear-air radar at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, and rawinsonde flights made at selected locations near the profiler site. Four separate periods were examined: December 1990, February 1991, April 1991, and June 1991. The data were concentrated on 3 to 5 nearly contiguous days of each month. Rawinsonde flights were tracked and plotted relative to the radar site. The radar data were averaged to better intercompare the two very different profiling systems. Effects of seasonal variation on the comparison are discussed.
