Abstract : Sensors and measurement techniques are considered for determining the following atmospheric parameters at altitudes between the surface and 150,000 feet: temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, density, radiation flux (solar and terrestrial), and ozone concentration. This effort is carried out by literature search and by direct contacts. Three modes of atmospheric sounding are considered: balloons, rocketsondes or rocket-deployed dropsondes,AND INSTRUMENTED ROCKET PROBES. An annotated bibliography of 103 items is appended. (Author)
