High Resolution Temperature Profile
High resolution (20cm) temperature profile, just above
the tropopause. Boxes marked with letters (a ...g) contain
examples of sheets. Two close-ups of sheets "b" and "e" are
displayed with the three profiles measured on the main
gondola. Ongoing mixing is clearly present in the sheet "b".
