Regression equations for specifying atmospheric density above 30 km from observational data at radiosonde altitudes(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Analysis of a small rocket data sample from the Soviet observing site at Heiss Island (81 degrees N) indicated a high correlation between the density of the upper stratosphere and the temperature and pressure at certain altitudes in the lower stratosphere. Strong densitytemperature and densitypressure relationships may be anticipated under certain conditions from consideration of the hydrostatic equation and the equation of state, the latter differentiated with respect to height. Large samples of rocket observational data for a northerly and a southerly station were specially processed to yield correlation coefficients for all possible pairs of altitudes between 20 and 60 km. Knowledge of maxima in the vertical profiles of the correlation coefficients then made it possible to construct regression equations with minimum standard error of estimate. It is shown that such equations may be used to predict the density satisfactorily at altitudes up to about 50 km from radiosonde observational data on the thermodynamic state of the lower stratosphere. Incidental to the development of the prediction equations is a discussion of the observed patterns of the intralevel correlation of density with temperature and pressure and the interlevel correlation of density with temperature, pressure, and density, to 80 km.

Seasonal and latitudinal variations of air density in the mesosphere (30 to80 kilometers)(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The results of a statistical analysis of mesosphere data, together with four other soundings are given. The lowest densities are found in winter in arctic latitudes. At 65 km, the mean winter density is 60% of the mean summer density. The seasonal variation in midlatitudes is relatively small, amounting to less than 5% below 50 km, with a maximum of 13% at 66 km. The latitudinal gradient is greatest in winter, and greatest at around 65 km. The gradient is directed northward from midlatitudes, in the AMOUNT OF 2% per degree of latitude (at 65 km), and there is a smaller gradient directed equatorward from midlatitudes. At midlatitudes, the standard deviation of density varies from 4% (of the mean density) at 30 km to about 20% near 60 km, remaining nearly constant up to the top of the mesosphere. In arctic latitudes, the standard deviation varies from 11% at 30 km to a maximum of about 40% near 60 km, decreasing to about 30% at 80 km
