Overview of Windsond operation


“We find the weather balloons a useful demonstration tool that excites the students that are able to take part in the launch.”

“What can I say about Windsond – it was absolutely brilliant!!! My student and one of the local PhD students did some really great work.”

“Windsond is an enabling tech for researchers”

“I’ve done a couple of soundings now, and so far I’m very happy with the system! The mobility is a real plus – with no need to carry a big helium canister, we can launch a series of sondes anywhere. And the software is very easy to use and sensible output formats.”
