  • Evaluation of NASA satellite- and model-derived weather data for simulation of maize yield potential in China

    Use of crop models is frequently constrained by lack of the required weather data. This paper evaluates satellite-based solar radiation and model-derived air temperature (maximum temperature, Tmax; minimum temperature, Tmin) from NASA and their utility for simulating maize (Zea mays L.) yield potential at 39 locations in China's major maize-producing regions. The reference data in this evaluation ...

  • Estimation of daily dew point temperature using genetic programming and neural networks approaches

    The present study investigates the ability of two different artificial neural network (ANN) models and gene expression programming (GEP) technique for estimating daily dew point temperature by using recorded weather data. The weather data used consist of 8 years of daily records of air temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, incoming solar radiation and dew point ...

  • Development of the Stormwater Information System that protects life and property from floods

    The Stormwater Information System distributes storm pump operating conditions, etc. to residents in real time via the Internet utilizing a private network that employs optical fibers installed in sewer pipes. Information to be distributed includes advisory and warning information relating to weather data, weather radar information, river information, emergency disaster information, refuge maps, ...

  • Weather station display solution for local data

    Dyacon has provided fully autonomous weather station solutions to our commercial and industrial users for several years now. Nearly all stations have used the embedded cell phone to provide a reliable wireless interface for a Weather Underground connection, data log upload, and remote command and control. Nevertheless, there are some applications that require a local solution or one that does ...

  • Evaluating the uncertainty and reliability of standardized indices

    Standardized indices are widely used in the spatio-temporal monitoring of several hydrological variables. The estimation of these indices is affected by uncertainty which depends on the methods adopted for their quantification and on the characteristics (i.e., size and variability) of the available sample of observations. In this paper various uncertainty measures, applicable to any kind of ...

  • Impact of weather conditions on pipe failure: a statistical analysis

    The occurrence of pipe failures in drinking water distribution networks may be influenced by weather conditions. In this work, a statistical analysis is performed to study the correlations between weather parameters and pipe failure in the Netherlands with the ultimate aim to predict the effects of climate change on network integrity. Failure data from a Dutch national failure database were ...

  • The complexity of regional warming in the United Arab Emirates in the period 1982-2009

    Increases in atmospheric temperature are a global phenomenon, but reports of regional climate changes are scarce. Since no long-term air temperature and humidity data were reported from the UAE we obtained routinely collected weather data from three airports in the Emirates. Over the period 1982-2009 in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Al Ain the mean annual temperature increased by up to +3°C. Increases ...

  • Weather Underground

    Getting your weather data where you need it, when you need it is a priority for many private weather station users. Several Dyacon banner images feature a text message weather report, the advantages of which I will write about in another post. However, when you have a large number of users, a web interface is preferred. Dyacon MS-130, MS-140, and MS-150 weather stations have an integrated cell ...

  • Investigating effect of socio-economic and climatic variables in urban water consumption prediction via Gaussian process regression approach

    Due to the importance of forecasting urban water demand (WD), the present study investigated the capability of Gaussian process regression (GPR) using different features as input data. WD could be represented as a function of various variables such as climatic, socioeconomic, institutional and management factors to understand it better. Therefore, in the present study, GPR was used to predict ...

  • Case study - Weather data for nautical information system

    In Lemwerder, Germany at the Weser River, wind direction and speed are measured and transferred in 60 second intervals via the OTT netDL 1000. The data is transmitted, wireless, over a distance of 600 meters to the radar tower in Ritzenbuettel, where it is integrated into the ship traffic network - the Authority for Water and Navigation (WSA), Bremen. The WSA is also responsible for monitoring ...
