Recent developments in aerospace technology make it possible to probe all regions of the atmosphere. Suitable sensors for taking observations in all regions do not yet exist. Electronics scientists and engineers are usually not familiar with these problems but they have the knowhow needed to solve them technically. Meteorological rockets, special observations from satellites and indirect probes are discussed briefly as examples. Evidently more contact between electronic and atmospheric scientists could yield a significant increase in our understanding of the atmosphere.
