Radiosondes are meteorological devices that are used to measure pressure, temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction in the upper atmosphere. The radiosonde reaches an altitude of up to 30 kilometers and transmits continuous data to ground equipment during its ascent. The ground-based sounding system processes the data and converts it into meteorological weather messages.
