A major component of the Tropical Observing System deployed during the Global Weather Experiment was the Aircraft Dropwindsonde System. The emphasis in this article is upon the processing of the data gathered by this system and upon factors that influence the quality of the data. The wind-finding algorithm is presented together with a description of the interactive raw data editing procedures. Some examples of drops illustrating various points are included.
