Data Analysis

Graphical Analysis

The results have been graphed.   The error bars are ± one standard deviation.  The last data item of each set is the average of the preceeding items.   I believe the graphs show good consistancy of the data with the exception of the first few measurements made on board the KAO at 37,000 ft.  I think it reasonable to eliminate the extreme data point for reasons given in the flight log.

I have plotted the average data at each elevation as well as a best-fit exponential curve approximating the data.  The data certainly appears to fit an exponential curve, however the significance of the derived exponential parameters is at this time unknown.
