by L.V. Toralballo,

Serial Information: Journal of the Surveying and Mapping Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 2, Pg. 1-16

Document Type: Journal Paper


Hydrodynamic equation derived similar to that which underlies method generally known as Airborne Profile Recording but one that is free of assumption that wind is geostrophic; aircraft is made to fly along an isobar and certain atmospheric measurements are taken enroute as well as at ends of trajectory and on two ground points.
