1. Introduction The radiosonde is widely considered to be the gold standard for measuring vertical profiles of thermodynamic and kinematic variables. The in situ nature of radiosonde observations allows scientists to obtain a high-vertical-resolution (roughly every 10 m) picture of the atmosphere. Because of this, radiosondes are used for several different applications. Meteorologists use these profiles to understand the current atmospheric state, initialize models, verify model forecasts, and
