Measuring High Altitude Wind

At major airports and air stations all over the world wind velocity, direction, temperature and dew point measurements are made by balloons released at midnight and noon each day. Data is transmitted back to the ground for readings made every few hundred meters as the balloon rises. NOAA makes these figures available on the Web for all world sites right after the readings are taken, as do other agencies around the world.
