Abstract

Knowing the actual state of the atmosphere is the basis for any kind of weather forecast. The overall atmospheric condition is analyzed periodically using numerous ground station observations and radiosondes rising on a balloon and gathering the vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction. These data are transmitted directly to a ground station. Dropsondes perform in a very similar way. They are dropped from an aircraft or a balloon mainly for research purposes over any location, in narrow temporal or spatial intervals and in inaccessible areas. The data gathered by dropsondes are transmitted to and recorded inside the aircraft.
