    • Abstract


      A brief description of the Väisälä radiosonde is given and its general performance-characteristics discussed. Some results of ascents made at Ahmedabad with this type of instrument in the last two years are presented. The question of the diurnal variation of temperature in the upper atmosphere is examined with reference to the serial ascents made in the month of April 1952.
