Radiosondes MET

A radiosonde is a balloon with its own instruments sent up through the atmosphere. Equipped with a barometer, thermometer and hygrometer, it can directly measure pressure, temperature and humidity. It cannot directly measure wind as this is done indirectly by monitoring the balloon's movements on radar.
