Abstract

Mean upper-air pressure heights, temperatures, and mixing ratios are presented for 48 radiosonde stations well distributed in longitude around the globe. Of the 48 stations whose means are given, a majority were selected from arid zones, equatorial regions, and from the Southern Hemisphere. This geographical distribution, plus the fact that humidity means are given, constitute the chief value of the data presented.
