Abstract
A SONIC WIND SYSTEM THAT IS CAPABLE OF MEASURING WIND SPEEDS IN THE RANGE OF 0.1 METERS/SEC TO 30 METERS/SEC CAN BE USED TO COMPUTE THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE 95-100% RANGE. THE SPEED OF SOUND OF AIR IS A FUNCTION OF THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF THE AIR AND THE TEMPERATURE. BY MEASURING THE TEMPERATURE OF THE AMBIENT AIR, THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY CAN BE CALCULATED. A SINGLE SENSOR THAT COULD PROVIDE RELATIVE HUMIDITY MEASUREMENT, IN ADDITION TO WIND SPEED, WIND DIRECTION, AND TEMPERATURE WOULD GREATLY ENHANCE ATMOSPHERIC MODELS.
