Abstract

Temperature structure coefficients were measured with balloon-borne temperature sensors. Data converted to refractive-index-structure coefficients are reported. These extend knowledge of this coefficient to the upper troposphere. The results are discussed with reference to possible meteorological origins for turbulence.
