Abstract

Accurate moisture measurements can be obtained at the Southern Great Plains Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Cloud and Radiation Testbed Central Facility using standard capacitive relative humidity (RH) sensors, Vaisala HMP 35 temperature and relative humidity probes. Collocating chilled mirror sensors with Vaisala sensors showed that agreement between all three sensors was about 2-3%, within the uncertainty of the instrumentation. The redundant RH measurements made on the 60 m tower made it possible to ensure accurate moisture measurements. The Surface Meteorological Observing Station RH sensor appeared to be accurate when compared with the CM located at the Balloon Born Sounding launch site.
