Description
ROCKETSONDES are meteorological instrument packages that measure
vertical profiles of atmospheric winds and either temperature or
density upon descent after ejection from a rocket at or near
apogee (point in an orbit when the orbiting object is farthest
away from the central object); reach altitudes above those
typical for a balloon-borne radiosonde.
