This paper describes the most significant sources of errors and disturbance when measuring temperature and humidity with a glider. Measurement flights have been started from different airports in Germany, between April and August of 2018, resulting in a collection of over 90 hours of flight data logs. We show how error correction can be applied to the measurement data. Analysis of the data indicates that core assumptions of the theories of thermals, which have been published for decades cannot…

Forecasting soaring flight conditions in mountainous areas is more complex than over flat terrain due to the area-height distribution of topography. The resultant volume-effect is the reason why the

Abstract The theory of operation of humidity sensors has not been widely discussed in the literature. In particular, no convincing explanation has been given as to why they respond to relative
