Atmospheric physics in general is a branch of physical science which as such has received little attention in this country. This is particularly true in the case of upper atmosphere studies, although excellent work has been carried out in specific fields. The growing military and commercial interest in high-altitude rocket-propelled flight will demand an integrated and complete knowledge of the upper atmosphere. This paper discusses the “scientific team” as a means of effectively attacking the broad problems confronting physicists and meteorologists in the upper atmosphere and suggests that certain revisions in the meteorologists' formal educational plan be made in order to assure the most efficient operation of the “team.”
