  • Prescribed Burning

    A general understanding of the separate and combined effects of several weather elements on fire behavior is needed to plan and execute a good prescribed burn. Because weather and fuel factors interact, an experienced prescribed burner can conduct a successful burn even with one or more factors slightly outside the desired rangeā€”as long as they are offset by other factors. Accurate fire weather monitoring of fire danger indices via the RAWS network, providing historical data leading up to a prescribed burn is critical in the planning stages. However, having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real time during the execution of a prescribed burn is just as critical. The weather variables most applicable to prescription burns are air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. A combination of wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, and solar insulation largely determines fuel condition which in turn affects fire behavior.

  • Environmental Solutions for Airlines

    Governments the world over are now working on regulations that will require Airlines to monitor and manage their GHG emissions. The UK is leading this effort with requirements for 2010 - 2012, and other countries are soon to follow. Implementation of GHGWARE and the VisionMonitor Real-Time Environmental Performance Suite allows proactive GHG emissions and compliance data management in real-time as well as predictive modeling tools for planning of future regulatory compliance.
