Description
TETHERSONDES are radiosondes attached to a fixed or tethered
balloon that is usually larger than the balloons used for
upper-air soundings; the tether limits the sounding to the
boundary layer and the radiosonde moves up and down the tether
to get multiple, high resolution profiles of the boundary layer.
