FISAPS Workshop on Research Using High Vertical-Resolution Radiosonde Data

This is the tentative workshop agenda. All speakers are confirmed. Some will present remotely. The agenda may change as abstracts for contributed talks are received to make for a logical flow

See the Workshop Participant List
