Word of The Day
Radiosonde: A free-flying balloon carrying meteorological instruments. The balloon climbs to a height of 20-30 km above mean sea level, sending information from these sensors to ground stations, whereupon it bursts, returning the equipment to the ground. The progress of the radiosonde is tracked by radar.
