Abstract

A new radiosonde system considerably improves the detection of fine temperature structure in the lower atmosphere. Special features of the system include a simple, inexpensive radiosonde which uses a monolithic timer in a rapid-response, temperature sensing audio oscillator circuit, a receiver which uses an integrated-circuit phase-lock-loop to track the audio-frequency pulses, and a simple, barometric release mechanism. The system has been used extensively in recent field investigations of the planetary boundary layer.
