Diffusion coefficients derived from radar meteor echoes and corrected for atmospheric wind shears have been used to investigate a linear relation between diffusion and height in the atmosphere. The results of a least square fit and of a method in which both variables are considered subject to errors are presented and discussed. The present results seem to indicate that the relation between diffusion coefficient and height is not as simple as supposed. Scale height values derived from these data are not consistent with accepted values in the atmosphere. © 1978.
