We present the results of applying the MTP-5PE meteorological temperature profiler for determining the spatial zones of possible aircraft icing in Tomsk airport on March 17, 2013. The spatial zones were determined using the RAP-algorithm, the Godske formula, as well as the AMIS-RF data for retrieving the humidity profile. The RAP algorithm and the Godske formula are shown to predict similar locations of spatial zones of possible aircraft icing. However, the RAP results are closer to the actual icing reports available from aircraft crews.
