A Survey of Hawaii for Balloon Launch Sites

A group under Dr. Luis Alvarez at the Space Sciences Laboratory, University of California, is preparing a balloon-borne particle physics experiment, designed for recovery at sea. Winter flights in westerly winds require a launch site with water to the east, preferably near California. At the request of Dr. Alvarez' group, NCAR carried out a survey of potential launch sites in the Hawaiian Islands from 23 April through 5 May 1967. This report contains the details of this survey.
