Cloud observations made by crew members during flights of Project Jet Stream are used to determine the frequency of occurrence of various types of clouds in the vicinity of jet streams. These cloud distributions may be useful in upper-air analysis and forecasting. Furthermore, a knowledge of cloud distributions may be used as an in-flight aid for identifying and locating jet streams.
