    Precipitation measurement with GPRS data transmission

    In a water association consisting of several communities it became necessary to investigate the precipitation volumes for billing purposes. Seven measurement spots were required to detect the precipitation volumes. Since data from the four existing measurement spots had to be collected manually so far, the new measurement concept was planned to feature data transmission to a central access point via GPRS. See the NIVUS solution for this measurement task here.

  • River Level Monitoring -

    SUMMARY Fielded water level measurement stations, based on GaugerGSM sensor, report real time stream levels and flow. Stations are located across a stream-rich region of the upper Galilee feeding the Jordan river in the northern part of Israel. The region is a popular tourist destination due to its biblical origins, rich flora and fauna. Field data is available over the Internet to authorized engineers, site supervisors and Government officials. remote monitoring station - close up THE NEED The water basin in the Upper Galilee maintains a delicate balance between recharges, net precipitation, domestic and irrigation consumption, and water tourism (canoeing). Local and state officials are tasked to study the tradeoffs, manage risks and take actions to keep the balance. Monitoring stations are essential for data collection. remote monitoring station - overall

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

  • 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.

  • Aviation Meteorology

    SWS and VPF sensors are used in airports throughout the world as part of aviation ground control and meteorological monitoring systems. Our visibility and ambient light sensors form the core of Runway Visual Range monitoring systems used to control the safe landing of aircraft in reduced visibility conditions. Our present weather sensors provide automated precipitation classification and monitoring that forms a vital part of the METAR signals broadcast to aircraft in the airport vicinity. The detection and reporting of thunderstorms is important in the aviation industry supporting both the safety of ground operations and the provision of meteorological data to aircraft and forecasting authorities. Our BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector has been developed to be compliant with FAA regulations for lightning detection systems used at airfields.
