A study has been conducted to determine the reliability of radiosonde humidity measurements at low relative humidities. Carbon hygristors were calibrated over a wide range of conditions and compared with manufacturing specifications. Some observed differences between military and NWS radiosonde measurements can be explained on the basis of data reduction technique.
