Resource title Tethered balloon at site 2
Resource abstract There were two tethered balloons at site 2 : On corn site (University of Utah) On moor site (Laboratoire d'Aérologie) Measurements of temperature, pressure, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction were done by several probes at different altitudes (with logarithmic spacing) above moor (LA) and corn (Utah) sites. The balloons made simultaneous profiles on IOP days. Profiling strategies were different from one IOP to the other.
