Abstract

Preliminary results of wind velocity measurements made using the Arecibo 430 MHz radar are presented. These measurements were made in the altitude range between 10 and 30 km, with a time resolution of 1–2 min, and an improved altitude resolution of 150 m. A few interesting phenomena such as a quasi-stationary wavy structure and short period sinusoidal oscillations are discussed.
