Abstract : The reduction of meteorological rocketsonde data at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, typically was done with a mixture of manual and computer techniques. The effort described by this report presents the conversion of the manual process to automated techniques, reviews the mathematical formulation of the data reduction process, and flowcharts and lists the complete data reduction program. Comparisons between manually reduced and computerized rocketsonde temperature data are presented. (Author;)
