Abstract:

The results of tests performed at AFCRL to determine how closely the modified ANTMQ-11 agrees with the ML-24 psychrometer are presented. The analysis is based on 2863 observations obtained under field conditions. All values were accepted as reported with no corrections in the recorded data. The ANTMQ-11 responds to changes in dew point and temperature in the same manner as the ML-24. The tests indicate that a bias error exists in the ANTMQ-11 dew-point sensors. If the bias of an individual dew-point sensor is determined and readings are adjusted compensate for this bias, dew-point temperature can be accepted as indicated or recorded. Author
