UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING/LENINGRAD STATE UNIVERSITY COOPERATIVE STRATOSPHERIC AEROSOL RESEARCH PROGRAM

In 1974, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Climatic Impact Assessment Program initiated a study of stratospheric aerosols which consisted of a cooperative program between the University of Wyoming and Leningrad State University in the U.S.S.R. Since 1975, the program has been continued by the Federal Aviation Administration, High Altitude Pollution Program. This program resulted in cooperative stratospheric balloon flights from a Soviet balloon launch facility at Rylsk, in the U.S.S.R., during August of 1975, and from the University of Wyoming's facility in Laramie, during August of 1976. In November of 1977, the principal investigators met in Leningrad to discuss the results of the comparative measurements. This meeting resulted in a lengthy joint report, which serves as the main body of this interim report. (Author)
