Abstract: A special balloon flight was conducted jointly by National Scientific Balloon Facility of TIFR, Hyderabad, and India Meteorological Department, Hyderabad, during the solar eclipse of 24 Oct. 1995 to study the eclipse induced effects on wind and temperature profiles over Hyderabad (17°23'N,78°29'E). The balloon went up to 37 km. Maximum cooling by almost 9-10oC was observed below the tropopause at an altitude of 15.5 km (27% obscuration) and the tropopause was found to descend down by 300 m and got broadened. Changes in wind velocity were observed below the tropopause at 15.5 km.
