Radiosonde flights taken at 0300Z and 0425Z February 11, 1949 in Lander, Wyoming, revealed some irregular rates of ascent and during two intervals the balloon actually descended. This paper offers an explanation of these large vertical air currents on the basis of a wave moving on the temperature inversion and also on the basis of some theoretical work by Queney.
