MMS
Meteorological Measurement System

The Meteorological Measurement System (MMS) provides high-resolution and accurate meteorological parameters. MMS measures atmospheric pressure, temperature, air turbulence, and the direction and speed of winds (both horizontal and vertical) immediately around the plane. These fundamental meteorological measurements give a picture of the environment through which the plane is flying and collecting samples. These variables are intertwined with other measurements, such as relative humidity. pressure (precision of ±0.3 mb with accuracy of 0.5%), temperature (±0.3 K, 0.2%), horizontal wind (±1 m s−1, 3.3%), and vertical wind (±0.3 m s−1). Derived parameters are potential temperature, true airspeed, turbulence dissipation rate, and Reynolds number
