EVALUATION OF METEOROLOGICAL ROCKET WIND SENSORS.

Pagination or Media Count:
Data from the Meteorological Rocket Network have been used to evaluate the wind sensors from the standpoint of wind speed and wind variability. To investigate the wind variability at any given location, pairs of rocket firings were selected with a time interval of 24 hours. The variations of the wind for this period were examined to determine if there was any significant difference in the values depending on whether the sensors were chaff, chute, or a chaff-chute combination. Analysis of the data indicates that the 24-hour mean vector wind differences are 1 a function of wind speed, and 2 independent of sensor. Author
