Radiosondes are the primary source of essential atmospheric parameters used by climate and weather prediction models as well as for manually derived forecasts and 100s of radiosondes are launched across the planet every day. The radiosonde activity will:

  1. Introduce you to "radiosonde technology" and provide you with the opportunity to participate in the preparation and launch of a sonde.
  2. Provide you with the understanding and techniques to visualise sonde data in a universally used format.
  3. Provide you with the understanding and techniques to interpret the data from a sonde.
