The details of how altimeter setting is mechanized in an aircraft pressure altimeter can be found in Iribarne and Godson (1981). Both the hypsometric altitude from Eq. 1) and the pressure altitude from Eq. 5) assume that there are no horizontal pressure gradients. Height measurements based on RADAR are not covered here. The sum of RADAR altitude plus the height of the terrain above sea level approximates hypsometric or pressure altitude measurements, but accurate terrain data is not available at very fine scale, and 11 12 2 Measurement of Aircraft State and Thermodynamic and Dynamic Variables surface artifacts such as buildings can complicate that determination except, of course, over the sea.

Traces of LWC, Ze , Temperature and ZDR at 105 m from the aircraft are shown in (c). (d) Sample images from a PMS 2D-C probe. The width of each strip represents 800 μm. 21 Fuzzy-logic based classification of particle from a flight in winter Ns over Ontario, Canada. Examples of particle images recorded with a PMS 2D-C probe at flight level are also shown for reference. 27 Downward looking RADAR and LIDAR observations collected in an Arctic cloud on 1 April 2008 during the POLARCAT field campaign using the RALI system on the French Falcon ATR42 aircraft.

0065 K m−1 . 65 K. This is the atmospheric layer important for normal aviation, although the tabulated standards continue further up to 86 000 m. Applying this temperature distribution, we can calculate the altitude for a standard day from a pressure measurement alone in any given flight level. In aviation, this is exactly what happened to the avionic instrument standards. 0065 K m−1 . Then, the instrument shows the pressure altitude. The importance of this standard procedure in aviation is the reliable vertical separation of traffic in the air.
