An atmospheric sounding is a measurement of vertical distribution of physical properties of the atmospheric column such as pressure, temperature, wind speed and wind direction (thus deriving wind shear), liquid water content, ozone concentration, pollution, and other properties. Such measurements are performed in a variety of ways including remote sensing and in situ observations.
Additional recommended knowledge
There is even a sounder at Mars: the Mars climate sounder on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
