Pre-launch procedures for RS92 soundings

2011-06-23

Attached is a document describing the requirements for GRUAN station regarding the pre-launch procedures for routine soundings with Vaisala RS92 radiosondes.  In order to obtain high data quality, ensure long term stability,  and to make sure that measurement uncertainties are within the ranges that are reported in the product files, it is important that some ground checks are made before launch in the way described in this document and that the meta-data are reported to the GRUAN lead centre.
