Paper Abstract

The statistics of high altitude wind speed data at the tropopause (200mB) above Mt. Maidanak in Uzbekistan are presented. These data were obtained in 1991 at three meteorological stations Kokand, Tashkent and Termez, located around Mt. Maidanak. The data processing show that the high altitude wind speed above Mt. Maidanak is slowly changed with predominant direction from the west. The average value of wind speed at 200 mB for the entire period of observations is 27.0 m/c. The comparison of results with data, obtained at Paranal observatory in Chile shows, that this parameter of atmosphere at Mt. Maidanak is comparably small than above Paranal.
