A statistical analysis is presented of anomalous vertical wind shear with height from the surface to 1000 and 2000 feet over the ocean. Mention is made of unusual wind effects on the sea surface as a phenomenon that appears to be related to varying wind profiles, dependent upon oceanographic and meteorological conditions.

* Present address: Staff Aerologist, U. S. Atlantic Fleet, U. S. Naval Base, Norfolk 11, Va.
