Scope and Contents
The Tropical Wind, Energy Conversion, and Reference Level Experiment, or TWERLE, was sponsored by the Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA) and designed and implemented by NCAR and the University of Wisconsin. TWERLE was an intensive program of meteorological observations made from superpressure balloons orbiting the earth at the 150mb density level. The balloons were tracked and monitored by the Nimbus-6 satellite, providing data which increased understanding of atmospheric circulation.
