Annals of the International Geophysical Year, Volume 32: Meteorology covers the various aspects of the International Geophysical Year/International Geophysical Cooperation's meteorological program, focusing on radiation measurement. This book is divided into seven sections, and begins with an overview of the meteorological program of the IGY and some related activities. The subsequent chapter outlines the program of radiation measurement planned for the IGY and the data received at World Data Center C for the IGY/IGC period. These topics are followed by discussions on observations of solar radiation flux from aircraft flux of the Meteorological Research Flight during the period of February 1958-January 1960. Other chapters provide tabulations of meteorological data from ozone stations with IGY station numbers arranged according to latitude, north to south. The concluding chapter is devoted to the IGY-IGC effort in the field of nuclear radiation. This book will prove useful to geophysicists and researchers in the field.
