WHAT DOES DROPSONDE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

dropsonde

Dropsonde

A dropsonde is an expendable weather reconnaissance device created by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, designed to be dropped from an aircraft at altitude to more accurately measure tropical storm conditions as the device falls to the surface. The sonde contains a GPS receiver, along with pressure, temperature, and humidity sensors to capture atmospheric profiles and thermodynamic data. It typically relays these data to a computer in the aircraft by radio transmission. The device's descent is slowed and stabilized by a small square-cone parachute, allowing for multiple readings to be taken before it reaches the ocean surface. The sonde is a lightweight system designed to be operated by one person and is launched through a chute installed in the measuring aircraft, with immediate deployment of the parachute to reduce or eliminate any pendulum effect, and typically drops from three to five minutes. The sonde has a casing of stiff cardboard. During a typical hurricane season, the 53d Weather Reconnaissance Squadron Hurricane Hunters deploys 1000 to 1500 sondes on training and storm missions.
