Abstract:

Cited in this article are the results of an altitude comparison based on a reading of a radiosonde pressure unit, and calculated by measuring the slant range with a range-finding, attachment to a malachite radio theodolite. The relationship between the altitude divergence and the ballon coordinates, the sheltered location of the horizontal site and the characteristics of the subjacent media has been established. The results of special base-line observations were used to calculate the systematic and mean square errors in altitude, made by every measuring means, using P. F. Zaichikovs triple control method.
