A study of winds upto 32 km over Hyderabad Deccan
Rawin observations of eleven high altitude ascents at Hyderabad Deccan (India) during the months of February to March 1960 and April to May 1959 have been analysed. An abrupt change in direction of winds at an altitude of about 19 km during summer months, depth of westerlies and easterlies and the occurrence of two maxima and at least one minima of velocities and the relationship between their altitudes have been described. Also, vector average winds throughout the observed channel of atmosphere (0-32'km) and their relationship with 18 the maxima have been determined and described. It was also found that the upper winds were quite steady. The steadiness factor has been calculated for each altitude for the month of March 1960.
