Frédéric Vogt completed a MSc in Physics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2010, followed by a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University in 2015. From late 2015 to 2019, he was a Fellow of the European Southern Observatory, with duties at the Very Large Telescope of the Cerro Paranal astronomical observatory. Since 2016, he is a Scientific Collaborator at MeteoSwiss, where he is responsible for the radiosonde data analysis of 2022 Upper-Air Instrument Intercomparison (UAII) field campaign, organized by Deutscher Wetterdienst and MeteoSwiss under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization.


Results and conclusions from WMO's Upper Air Instrument Intercomparison 2022

Under the auspices of WMO, Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD), MeteoSwiss and a wider task team jointly conducted the Upper Air Instrument Intercomparison 2022 (UAII2022). While the focus of the UAII2022 is on radiosonde systems, it also assessed surface-based remote sensing, satellite data and aircraft-based observations. The field campaign of UAII2022 took place in Lindenberg, Germany, from August 8 to September 14, 2022, with 10 participating radiosonde models and a suite of active and passive remote sensing instruments. We present results and conclusions and will announce the public release of the final report.
