Visualization of information from your hydrometeorological & early flood warning network in a matter of seconds is critical in the decision making process. Contrail supports the data collection, processing, archiving and dissemination of your hydrometeorological and water resources data in one place.
OneRain's Contrail enterprise level software platform collects, processes and archives rainfall, flow, stream level, weather station and many other hydrometeorological data from multiple sources including ALERT/ALERT2 line-of-sight radio data, cellular data, and satellite weather gauge data, and any web-accessible data sources as well as neighboring outside sources such as USGS gauges, METAR, TIDES, HADS, RWIS... . The platform supports any number of users from their laptops, their smartphones, their tablets, however they are connected to the Internet.
At its core are the advanced alarm and notification capabilities. Used in Early Flood Warning, Safety of Dams, Emergency Management...
Context & Challenges
Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions.
As a result of the confinement of the waste water stations, toxic components such as H2S and Methylmercaptan increased. Safety of employees on such working sites has therefore become of major problem. To fight this hazardous pollution, air filtering systems have been installed. For the station managers, personal safety coupled with the need for constant air quality control and filter change has been a heavy task.
Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests.
The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire.
Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires.
How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.
