  • Remote Automatic Weather Station

    This applications note shows how a DT82E Envirologger is used to capture data from a weather station. This data is required by both a farmer and an agricultural scientist in order to research the direct effects of weather on crop planting and crop yield. The weather station will also be used for daily weather forecasting for a small community. Due to the inaccessibility of the proposed ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Transfer stations rural transfer station design

    Since small transfer stations in rural or tribal settings receive considerably lower volumes of waste and customer vehicles than large urban or suburban facilities, many of the design criteria will simply not apply. Cost frequently is a major consideration for small rural transfer stations, limiting what can be done. Consequently, rural transfer stations are often uncovered or partially covered ...

  • Weather and climate change: a game with loaded dice

    The past decade has been one of unprecedented weather extremes. Scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany argue that the high incidence of extremes is not merely accidental. From the many single events a pattern emerges. At least for extreme rainfall and heat waves the link with human-caused global warming is clear, the scientists show in a ...

  • Strengthening the world’s long term soil research base

    Imagine the science of climatology, if long-running weather stations were uncoordinated and operated independently with little cross-site comparison. Such is the present state of the long-term soils research base. The world’s long-term soil experiments are not well organized or even inventoried, and these studies are unknown to most scientists and to most of humanity. In the coming decades, ...

  • Stevens Hydra Probe Furthers Scientific Research at Alabama A&M

    For more than a decade now, the Stevens Hydra Probe has been an important data collection instrument used in The Soil Climate Analyses Network (SCAN). The SCAN Program helps scientists study soil moisture and temperature variability at different time scales and under different land uses and land covers. Studies that involve the SCAN program benefit the environmental science community as well as ...

  • Acoustic and Insulated Sheeting

    Powerclad Acoustic and Insulated sheeting systems are insulation materials laminated to scaffold sheeting for temporary weather protection and containment applications. Powerclad provides an effective system for controlling noise on construction sites and conditioning the working environment in both hot and cold climates. The Flame Retardant grades are ...

  • Mount Washington Observatory - USA

    The Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire, USA, is one of the oldest weather observatories in the world. Located in the White Mountains, it is a non-profit and educational institute whose purpose is to maintain a permanently staffed observatory atop Mount Washington and to use this unique station and other facilities to conduct programs of environmental observation and technical research, ...

  • Modelling meteorological conditions for the episode (December 2009) of measured high PM10 air concentrations in SW Poland - application of the WRF model

    The weather research and forecasting model has been applied to derive information on meteorological variables for the period with high concentrations of PM10 (1–30 December 2009) in SW Poland. Three one–way nested domains have been used and the results for the innermost domain have been compared with surface and radiosonde meteorological measurements for pressure (PRES), air ...

  • The use of microbial gene abundance in the development of fuel remediation guidelines in polar soils

    Terrestrial fuel spills in Antarctica commonly occur on ice‐free land around research stations as the result of human activities. Successful clean‐up of spills requires appropriate targets that enable contaminated sites to be signed off as no longer posing environmental risk following remediation. These targets are based on knowledge of the impacts of contaminants on the soil ecosystem and on ...

  • Thermal comfort evaluation in Tehran metro using Relative Warmth Index

    Underground railway systems, can generate heat from their operations to raise the temperatures of carriages and the station substantially. This may lead to passenger discomfort and complain especially in warm weather conditions that prevail in Tehran if underground environment is not cooled. Transportation air conditioning Committee of American ...

  • Climate change impact assessment on water resources in Iran: applying dynamic and statistical downscaling methods

    As a result of inappropriate management and rising levels of societal demand, in arid and semi-arid regions water resources are becoming increasingly stressed. Therefore, well-established insight into the effects of climate change on water resource components can be considered to be an essential strategy to reduce these effects. In this paper, Iran's climate change and variability, and the ...

  • Evaluation of downscaled daily rainfall hindcasts over Sydney, Australia using statistical and dynamical downscaling approaches

    The assessment of local and regional impacts of climate change often requires downscaling of general circulation model (GCM) projections from coarser GCM-scale to finer local- or catchment-scale spatial resolution. This paper provides an assessment of two downscaling approaches for simulation of daily rainfall over Sydney, Australia. The two downscaling alternatives compared include a ...

  • Digging for data on Africa’s climate future

    The cardboard box is covered with a layer of dust so thick it must have been tucked away in this Kenyan basement for decades. The researcher wipes off the dust and rummages through the papers stored inside by someone long since retired. Sheet after sheet of neatly typed paper emerges, the faded rows of numbers detailing rainfall, temperature and wind speed. In a way, the researcher is hunting for ...

  • Air quality management - from traffic management to environmental traffic management

    Traffic management systems are commonly used to optimize traffic flow in urban areas, e.g. to prevent traffic congestion. However, the regulation of traffic flows can also be used to control traffic induced emissions and therefore affects air quality. To use a traffic management system as an instrument for the benefit of air quality, the application requires reliable information about the current ...
