[1] Relative humidity (RH) measurements from Vaisala RS92 radiosondes are widely used in research and operational applications, but their accuracy is not well characterized as a function of height, RH, and time of day (or solar altitude angle). This study compares RS92 RH measurements to simultaneous water vapor measurements from three reference instruments of known accuracy. Cryogenic frost point hygrometer measurements are used to characterize the RS92 accuracy above the 700-mbar level… CONTINUE READING
