Cryogenic Frost Point Hygrometer
A sonde that accurately and precisely measures water vapor at elevations from the earth’s surface to the mid-stratosphere.
The Cryogenic Frost Point Hygrometer (CFH) is a sonde that accurately and precisely measures water vapor at elevations from the earth’s surface to the mid-stratosphere. Measure the amount of water vapor inside ice clouds or perform dehydration studies in tropical areas. The CFH is also great for validating satellite measurements and humidity sensors on radiosondes.
