June 8, 2010
This tethersonde was used to gather data during the Hawaiian Rainband Project (HaRP), a research project that studied recurrent rainbands that form just offshore near Hilo, Hawaii. A tethersonde carries a package of instruments that take standard meteorological measurements such as wind, pressure, temperature, and humidity. HaRP is an example of NSF's involvement in cooperative research. More than 75 staff members from the NSF-supported National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), researchers from universities and scientific institutions in five nations, and dozens of instruments were stationed near Hilo for this project.
