  • Calibration of a capacitance soil sensor is required to achieve the level of accuracy required for satellite ground truthing

    Why not make it easy with a non-capacitance based soil sensor like the HydraProbe? This study published in American Meteorological Society's BAMS journal demonstrates the extent of variability in readings one can expect with a soil moisture sensor based on capacitance technology.  To ...

  • Case study - Precipitation measurement in East Tyrolia high mountains

    The Defereggen Valley's remote location is in the middle of the East Tyrolean high mountain valleys in the Alps. Due to the remote location, extreme weather conditions, and lack of infrastructure, it had not been possible to install an official precipitation measurement station in the Defereggen Valley, yet. It was a "white spot" on the map, from a meteorological point of view. Today, ...

  • Measurement of Toxic and Related Air Pollutants - Field-Emplaceable Air Samplers for Automated Ambient, Site, and IAQ Use (Including TO-17 Applications)

    Abstract Air samples taken on collection media for laboratory analysis remain a highly sensitive and cost-effective means of assessment. However, collection of samples can be difficult using nonautomated samplers, particularly over long terms or at remote locations. This paper describes a number of automated air samplers for sorbent-tube and filter use. The samplers are batterypowered, portable ...


  • A simple methodology for surface layer characterization during diabatic extremes

    Increased global environmental awareness has fostered widespread use of remote automated weather station (RAWS) networks to monitor meteorological conditions, and reliance on atmospheric dispersion modeling for decisions concerning pollutant dispersion. Dispersion models require as input a characterization of surface layer (SL) heat and momentum fluxes and turbulence. Characterization of these ...
