  • Advanced offshore measurements to support wind energy production, weather forecasting, and emergency response

    Sonoma Technology, Inc. (STI), with support from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, is leading a unique partnership of corporate, government, and university researchers to develop a marine environmental observations program in the Gulf of Mexico. The primary goal of this project is to develop a framework of advanced offshore measurements to support emergency response, oil and gas exploration ...

  • Global aerosols studied by NILU

    Aerosols scatter and absorb solar radiation and thereby influence the radiation in the atmosphere and the global climate. To understand the climate system and the ongoing climate change it is important to know the distribution of aerosols in the atmosphere. Satellites provide an extremely useful tool to study this distribution, especially since it is very inhomogeneous with respect to ...

  • Measuring IR Light and Near-IR Light

    Infrared (IR) light emits a broad range of non-visible wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Applications for infrared, including near-infrared, are defined by the respective IR bands during output. For example, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) equipment uses 1,000 nm and 1,550 nm IR bands while surveying an area. In the military sector, 850 nm, 1,060 nm and 1,500 nm (and up) are used ...

  • The influence of the land surface on hydrometeorology and ecology: new advances from modeling and satellite remote sensing

    The importance of land surface processes has long been recognized in hydrometeorology and ecology for they play a key role in climate and weather modeling. However, their quantification has been challenging due to the complex nature of the land surface amongst other reasons. One of the difficult parts in the quantification is the effect of vegetation that are related to land surface processes ...
