Targeted Observations Using Micro-Dropsondes from the Stratosphere

This seminar examines the exciting innovations in dropsonde miniaturisation and High-Altitude Platform (HAP) technologies, which promises enhanced Numerical Weather Prediction model accuracy through provision of, timely, targeted observations from regions responsible for greatest error growth in forecast models. Presented are case studies including polar winter missions supporting better prediction of sudden stratospheric warming events; observations from intensifying tropical storms; and the potential to use these technologies in the study and forecasting of Atmospheric Rivers.
