Nasa to release TMA in 5 sounding rockets to study Jet Stream

Nasa is gearing up to have 5 consecutive launches of sounding rockets which would releasr Tri-Methyl-Aluminum higher in the sky which would be acting like tracers in the Jet Stream.
It would be tracked by the ground based cameras.
A similar experiment was done by ISRO in Jan 2010 during the annular solar eclipse.

Approximate locations in Troposphere and Thermosphere where the low and high jet streams are located, respectively. Tracer release and camera observation locations for ATREX mission.
