Project: Metrology for pressure, temperature, humidity and airspeed in the atmosphere

Measurements of pressure, temperature, humidity and airspeed are key to understanding the climate of the Earth. This project aims to improve climate models by improving these measurements. For example, humidity, i.e. water vapour, has a high heat capacity and can absorb and transfer energy in the atmosphere. Humidity measurements are required up to the stratosphere, however levels of water vapour in the stratosphere are so low that traditional techniques lack sufficient accuracy
