|Definition||An instrument package in common use in the 1970s and 1980s comprising a rod thermistor (for air temperature measurements), a carbon hygristor (for humidity measurements) and an aneroid pressure sensor with a radio data transmitter. The package was attached to a balloon filled with hydrogen or helium and released to measure an atmospheric profile on the ascent and, if fitted with a parachute, the descent. The radio retransmitted LORAN-C signals allowing the balloon to be tracked giving measurements of winds.|
