Two contacts:
Dr. Flaaten http://www.aem.umn.edu/info/spotlight/mnsgc12307.shtml
Dr. Seifert http://www.cord.edu/faculty/seifert/
Both do a lot of ballooning in MN. I sent one up with Dr Flaaten and
spoke separately with Dr Seifert. Both good guys. Went to college with
Paul Seifert. They both use different data collection systems. Flaaten
uses a system called HOBO (like vernier, pasco...) Seifert uses Basic
Stamp (if I remember correctly).

weather balloon, equipped with a camera, into the stratosphere. They
would like for it to return the same type of data as a standard weather
balloon (e.g. the ones launched daily at 0h UT and 12h UT) as well as
take pictures and video of the ascent. I remember a discussion on this
list earlier this year, but I am having difficulty pinpointing it in the
archives. Does anyone remember when this discussion was had and where I
can get the information on how their device was constructed? In the
meantime I will continue to search Tap-L and the Web for more
information.
