Short summary
Since 1982-12-09 the icebreaker POLARSTERN is the flagship of German polar research. It has conducted 30 campaigns to Antarctica, and 29 to the Arctic. It is therefore the perfect basis for radiosonde launches in data-sparse regions (oceans and polar regions). Radiosondes are balloon-borne instruments which record atmospheric temperature, humidity and pressure. The data are used, e.g. for short and medium weather forecasts. In these 30 years, 12 378 radiosonde balloons were started on POLARSTERN.
