Measurements of temperature variations in the atmosphere near the tropopause over land in the vicinity of Langley Field, Va., are presented. This investigation was made for the purpose of obtaining information on the accuracy of the temperature method(NACA TN 2046) of airspeed calibration over the range of Mach number from 0.6 to .08. The temperature surveys and the description of a specially designed thermometer are also presented.
