fast-response sensors

In situ instruments that rapidly respond to turbulent fluctuations in atmospheric variables (e.g., velocity, temperature, and humidity).

This capability typically requires a sensor time constant of < 1 s for tower-based sensors and in the range of 0.01–0.1 s for aircraft sensors.
