A limited correlation of atmospheric sounding data and turbulence experienced by rocket-powered models

Homer P. Mason, William N. Gardner
Apr 1957

Atmospheric turbulence as experienced by rocket-powered models and temperature lapse-rate data obtained from rawinsonde soundings have been analyzed and compared in 38 cases by using an assumed temperature lapse-rate stability boundary as a basis for comparison. All the data used in the analysis were obtained from tests made at the Langley Pilotless Aircraft Research Station at Wallops Island, Va.
