Record #202960:

Byrd's Arctic flight in the context of model atmospheres / G.H. Newsom.

Title: Byrd's Arctic flight in the context of model atmospheres / G.H. Newsom.
Author(s): Newsom, G. H.
Date: 2013.
In: Polar Record. (2013.), Vol. 49(248) (2013)
Abstract: Reports use of modern computer models to re-examine Richard Byrd's dead-reckoning navigation on his 1926 flight from Spitsbergen and his return. Although details of how Byrd converts atmospheric pressure to altitude are ambiguous, recent atmospheric models appear to indicate small systematic bias that would cause Byrd to overestimate dead-reckoning distance travelled.
