The wind profiler measurements at Chalco were made by scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory. The temperature soundings at Tres Marias were carried out by Dr. Rodolfo Salas Colunga of the Politecnico Nacional: Vocacional 10 in Mexico City. This research was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, under the auspices of the Environmental Meteorology Program of the Environmental Sciences Division of the Office of Biological and Environmental Research in the Office of Science, under Contract DE-AC06-76RLO 1830 at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by Battelle Memorial Institute.
