Abstract

A system to obtain the detailed temperature profiles from the ground surface to heights of 1500–2000 m. has been developed. This economical system employs modified radiosondes and less complex receiving equipment than used at standard radiosonde stations. A simplified approach for obtaining heights by means of a modified baroswitch circuit is also described. The temperature measuring system has performed successfully for two years with reliable results.
