Seasonal wind variations over Antarctica in an altitude region from surface up to about 80 km are studied using data from 52 successful M-100 meteorological rocket soundings at Molodezhnaya, Antarctica where the author worked during 1971-73. It is found that the South Polar summer was characterised by light easterly winds increasing in strength with altitude and the winter exhibited strong westerly winds halving jet speeds of about 90 m/s increasing in strength as the season progressed, while… CONTINUE READING
