Title: Evaluating winds aloft by a simplified field technique

Author: Hull, Melvin K.

Date: 1966

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-110. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 10 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-110

Description: A field technique for evaluating winds aloft is described. It can be used at remote places--even at the site of a wildfire. It has proved accurate as any known single theodolite technique, and is time-saving because the winds aloft are evaluated in miles per hour from direct readout. The tools required are much lower in cost, more portable, and more multi-purpose than any other known technique.
