Abstract

A series of observations made on the slope of Pikes Peak (Colorado) during a survey trip were compared with data from the nearest radiosonde station at Denver. The slope measurements gave a good indication of free-air conditions, as determined by the radiosonde. A further consideration of mountain slope observation chains as a supplement to regular upper-air soundings is suggested.
