Abstract:

Procedures for computing thermodynamic and wind data from radiosonde observations have been developed and presented in a variety of sources. The purpose of this report is to 1 present the procedures utilized at the Kwajalein Missile Range, 2 discuss the method of input and output format, and 3 present the program currently utilized at the Kwajalein Missile Range for machine computation of the atmospheric parameters. The techniques outlined for rawinsonde data evaluation are used routinely on a CDC-80903300 system for computer evaluation of Weather Bureau radiosonde data obtained with the GMD-1 Rawin Set. Author
