Literature Review (Bryan Goh)

Weather Balloons 

Weather balloons are high altitude balloons that are sent into the atmosphere whilst carrying instruments  called the radiosonde to measure the weather (humidity, temperature, wind velocity etc). The balloon itself is usually made of high latex material and lifted up into the air with hydrogen due to cost constraint. Weather balloons are made of special rubber made to withstand extreme temperature drop (Aberdeen, 2007)
