This report represents the deliverable of the action initiated at the First Session of the Expert Team on UpperAir Systems Intercomparisons (ETUASI), Geneva, Switzerland, 2004: „To elaborate global criteria for tracing the improvements, based on previous intercomparisons and recent radiosondes development“. In the report, different approaches are identified with the objective to define these criteria, and the following method was selected as the most appropriate one: Time evolution of selected statistical parameters reported in the different IOM international radiosonde comparisons organized between 1984 and 2005. A set of performance criteria is proposed together with a way how to extract the corresponding values from the IOM reports and to present the results.
