Particle sampling experiments utilizing sounding rockets were conducted in northern Sweden during August of 1962. Two successful flights were achieved, one in the presence of noctilucent clouds and one when no such clouds could be visually observed from the ground or from aircraft. The collecting surfaces were exposed between the altitudes of approximately 75 and 98 kilometers during ascent only. The instrumentation and performance of the rockets is discussed.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1964.tb00147.x
