Title:

Task Dropwindsonde Releases at 850 MB and Above

Submitter:

53 WRS (DOD)

Discussion

Reconnaissance aircraft have the capability to release dropwindsondes at 850mb and above. Historically, dropwindsondes have not been tasked to be released on cyclone missions flown below 700mb due to the short data stream and limited data points available from the instrument.

If this information is valuable to the community then consider lowering the altitude for tasked dropsonde releases to 850mb.

Recommendation:

Task reconnaissance aircraft to release dropsondes when tasked for fixes at 850mb and higher.
