Wind velocity profiles measured by the smoke-trail method at Wallops Island, Virginia, 1965 - 1969Thirty-nine detailed wind profiles measured by the smoke-trail method at the Wallops Island Test Range during the years 1965 through 1969 are presented as west-to-east and south-to-north velocity components at height intervals of 25 meters. The overall altitude range of the wind profile data varies from about 1 to 23 km. The wind measurements, which were made under a variety of conditions, include velocities in excess of the annual 99-percent highest wind value (the wind value which will not be exceeded 99 percent of the time) for the Wallops Island Test Range. The report also includes a listing of the wind soundings and their maximum velocities and direction of the maximum velocities measured at Wallops Island from 1959 through 1969. Results of smoke-trail enhancement experiments are also indicated.
