During this webinar we describe GPS signal processing and the GPS-related hardware at the ground station and in the radiosonde.
Radiosondes use data from global navigation satellite systems for measuring wind speed and direction, height, location and atmospheric pressure.
During this webinar we describe GPS-based measurements with the radiosonde. We will look at the two alternative pressure measurements available in Vaisala Radiosonde RS41: a GPS-based and a sensor-based measurement, and discuss guidelines for making a selection between them.
In this webinar you learn:
- To understand how GPS is used in radiosondes and how to ensure high quality of measurement results
- How atmospheric pressure is measured with GPS and when this is the preferred pressure measurement method
- Results of comparison soundings with GPS-based and sensor-based pressure measurements, including examples from various climates
