Abstract

A cause of erroneous temperatures obtained in the earlier phases of a study using standard radiosondes flown on constant-level balloons at White Sands Missile Range is discussed. A simple and inexpensive modification of the radiosondes which produces more accurate ambient temperatures on daylight flights is described.
