Abstract

A large amount of experimental research in the field of atmospheric physics involves carrying apparatus aloft by means of balloons. Data from balloon-borne instruments may be obtained either by recovery of the apparatus or by radio telemetering during the flight. Of these two methods, the latter is of course the more convenient and reliable, since recovery of the apparatus is time-consuming and often impossible.
