Continued use with sky lanterns

Windsond continues to be used in Mexico for big, traditional sky lanterns.

A special adaptation measures both ambient temperature, ambient humidity and internal temperature inside the heated paper balloon envelope. This is used to monitor, track and recover the lanterns but also to develop a model predicting how high and how long the lanterns fly.
