Abstract in another language

Techniques that are used to measure the temperature of the atmosphere include liquid-in-glass thermometers, electrical thermometers, bimetallic thermometers, and the most commonly used instruments: resistance thermometers. Radiation shields and ventilation are important for minimizing erroneous results. Fine-wire thermometers and sonic temperature measurement are important techniques for turbulence measurements. In addition to providing technical data, this chapter describes maintenance requirements and quality control and calibration methods for temperature sensors.
