  • 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 ...

  • 2011: A Year of Weather Extremes, with More to Come

    The global average temperature in 2011 was 14.52 degrees Celsius (58.14 degrees Fahrenheit). According to NASA scientists, this was the ninth warmest year in 132 years of recordkeeping, despite the cooling influence of the La Niña atmospheric and oceanic circulation pattern and relatively low solar irradiance. Since the 1970s, each subsequent decade has gotten hotter -- and 9 of the 10 ...

  • ´More Stations. More Data. Better Forecasts.´ – the NYS Mesonet

    “More Stations. More Data. Better Forecasts.” – that’s the slogan of New York State Mesonet. The weather observation network consists of a total of 125 weather stations all over the state of New York and Lufft was selected as one of the vendors to support them in capturing the data. All 125 of the weathers stations have the standard instrumentation suite. Of those 125, 17 ...

  • Community Solar Garden Powers Ontario Homes & Businesses - Case Study

    Overview: A new analysis from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory finds that shared photovoltaic (PV) solar systems — also called community solar gar- dens — could account for one-third to one-half of all solar PV power in the United States by 2020. These shared community solar systems greatly benefit the many business- es and homes (especially rental properties) ...

  • High School gets Hands-on Learning with MK-lll - Case Study

    The Cazenovia Board of Education last week accepted two donations of technology equipment worth more than $170,000 that will give Cazenovia High School technology students unique opportunities to construct and maintain both a weather station on the high school roof and an automated switch manufacturing work cell once used by Marquardt Switches. Once the switch machine is situated and ...

  • 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, ...

  • Estimating daily pan evaporation from climatic data of the State of Illinois, USA using adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) and artificial neural network (ANN)

    Evaporation is a major component of the hydrological cycle. It is an important aspect of water resource engineering and management, and in estimating the water budget of irrigation schemes. The current work presents the application of adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) and artificial neural network (ANN) approaches for modeling daily pan evaporation using daily climatic parameters. The ...

  • Rain Gauge Fixed with 12 V Regulator

    A friend came to me with a curious problem regarding the research weather stations he maintains. The Geonor rain gauges were experiencing glitches. Some of his stations exhibited only occasional problems, and others were failing almost daily. In the plot below, the rain gauge output is in blue. It should be a steady, increasing line representing the weight of the accumulated precipitation. ...

  • Case study - Buoy-based temperature profiling in the Bavarian Lakes

    In summertime a temperature stratification occurs in deep lakes – the surface water is warm, but deep down the water is cold.  This has considerable influence on the nutrient balance and the biological habitat in these lakes. Due to generally higher air temperatures induced by the climate change, both change and have effects on the life conditions of the ecosystems in the lakes. ...
