Balloon Flights As a means of implementing the bilateral agreement between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. on cooperation in the field of environmental protection, several working groups consisting of specialists from both countries were established. . . [Among their projects was] a cooperative field research venture conducted during July and August 1975 under working group VIII, a committee dealing with the influence of environmental changes on the climate. The site of the field work was the Soviet balloon base near Rylsk (pop. 20,000) about 500 km south of Moscow [. . .] The measurements themselves focused on the influence of aerosols on radiation in both the troposphere and stratosphere. One of the major experiments involved balloon flights car- rying both Soviet and American equipment: a dustsonde from U W and a particle impactor as well as an aerosol filter sampler supplied by the LSU group. [... ] The results of the field measurements are now being used to develop a detailed under- standing of the influence of aerosols and water vapor on radiation during the dates of the ex- periment. In addition, the cooperative balloon soundings provide an opportunity for a direct comparison of U.S. and U.S.S.R. techniques in the measurement of stratospheric aerosols. Bull. Amer. Meteor.
