  • How better weather forecasting can help stretch water supplies

    Reservoir managers look to storm predictions to make smarter choices about dam operations Last year, New York City faced an unusual situation. An epic winter in the city’s Delaware River watershed brought heavy snow and very little rain. Stubborn cold meant there was no snowmelt to refill water-supply reservoirs, even as the city’s 9.5 million residents were draining them dry. A ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Real time, high resolution regional weather and air quality forecasting system in West Macedonia, Greece

    This paper presents an overview of the University of Western Macedonia's (UoWM) operational model for predicting the prevailing meteorological and air quality conditions on a high resolution (2 × 2 km²) scale. The MM5 – SMOKE – CMAQ has been suitably parameterised with respect to the particular geographical and climatic characteristics of the region of West Macedonia. The system is designed to ...

  • Monitoring weather and climate from space

    State of the art weather forecasting, which has become an essential part of everyday life in Europe, would be almost  unthinkable without the reliable operational service delivered by Europe’s meteorological satellite organisation – EUMETSAT. The high-quality data and images are especially relevant in the context of severe weather situations and eather-related natural disasters. They are ...

  • How well is clean energy weathering the recession?

    The clean energy industry may not be popping the champagne cork, but it is at least holding the bottle in hand. While not unscathed by the recession, the industry sees growth in several sectors, according to recent reports. For example, use of smart meters—a key technology for better energy management and efficiency – is increasing at a rapid clip. A study by ABI Research, “Advanced Metering ...

  • Case study - Synapsys Solutions SIP weather interface

    Synapsys scores a first for football Synapsys, the leader in developing and supplying innovative BMS communication interfaces, has scored a goal with the installation of what’s thought to be the UK’s first automated control system for under soil heating at one of the country’s most prestigious sports venues. The system is part of an intelligent, integrated ...

  • NWS Weather Spotter Relies on RainWise - Case Study

    Tom Haraden is a retired National Park Service Ranger and current National Weather Service spotter in Utah. "I like that [my MK-lll-LR] is reliable, wireless, accurate, measures maximums and minimums," Tom says, " and measures eight parameters. I guess my favorite part is having an accurate barometer. I can predict the weather here with only that. We have the display hung where the kitchen, ...

  • Extreme Weather In A Changing Climate: Asking The Right Questions

    When a deadly heat wave lingers for an especially long time; when a hurricane makes landfall with particular ferocity; or when droughts, winter storms or cold snaps break records, the public is increasingly interested in knowing if human-induced climate change played a role. Attributing individual extreme weather events to a warming climate is difficult work. Even so, scientists have ...

  • What became of the radio amateurs’ weather station in Ravensburg?

    In November 2015, the chairman of the German Radio Amateurs Club’s (DARC) local association in Ravensburg, Germany introduced himself and explained how we helped to realize one of their dreams by sponsoring a professional WS601-UMB weather sensor. In the following article he shows us how the station has ...

  • Improved wet weather wastewater influent modelling at Viikinmäki WWTP by on-line weather radar information

    Municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) influent is typically dependent on diurnal variation of urban production of liquid waste, infiltration of stormwater runoff and groundwater infiltration. During wet weather conditions the infiltration phenomenon typically increases the risk of overflows in the sewer system as well as the risk of having to bypass the WWTP. Combined sewer infrastructure ...

  • A Time Series Forecasting of Air Pollution in Indore

    Abstract. Forecasting involves the generation of a number, set of numbers, or scenario that corresponds to a future occurrence. It is absolutely essential to short-range and long-range planning. By definition, a forecast is based on past data, as opposed to a prediction, which is more subjective and based on instinct, get feel, or guess. For example, the evening news gives the weather ...


  • The Benefit of Probabilistic Flood Forecasting on European Scale

    The European Flood Alert System (EFAS) is a research project that aims at improving preparedness for oncoming flood events by: • informing the authorities in the Member States of the possibility of a flood to happen before the local systems capture the event with their own monitoring and forecasting systems; • providing catchment based information that gives downstream authorities an overview of ...


  • Assimilation of weather radar and binary ubiquitous sensor measurements for quantitative precipitation estimation

    Assimilation of data from heterogeneous sensors and sensor networks is critical for achieving accurate measurements of environmental processes at the time and space scales necessary to improve forecasting and decision-making. Owing to different measurement accuracies and types of spatial and/or temporal measurement support of the component sensors, it is often unclear how best to combine these ...

  • How to collect and analyze data from 100,000 weather stations - Case Study

    Want to know what it’s like to analyze massive amounts of data under pressure? Talk to Bryson Koehler, CIO of The Weather Company (which owns the Weather Channel), who must interpret data sets from around the world to predict something as volatile as the weather. If you want to understand what it takes to collect, track and analyze reams of data, just check the weather. There are constant ...

  • Technology Can Help Fleets Manage Potential Weather Disruptions

    Hurricane Matthew is serving as another lesson for the U.S. trucking industry on the important role technology can and should play in operating in and around storm-affected regions. More than a million residences and businesses lost power in Florida alone, and at least 38 people died as a result of Matthew’s winds and torrential rains, 19 of them in North Carolina where widespread ...

  • More extreme weather: Say hello to our changing climate

    It’s the question on everyone’s minds these days: What’s up with the weather? The answer is increasingly clear: It’s our changing climate. The trends we are currently experiencing– a warmer world with more intense, extreme weather events– could not be clearer. It’s exactly what climate scientists and their models have, for many years now, forecast global ...

  • Potential Dispersion Modeling Uses of Archived NOAA Forecast Model Data

    A newly-developed generation of air quality simulation models has the potential to use profiles of wind, temperature, and turbulence, as well as improved mixing height determination, measures of surface heat flux, and a host of other meteorological parameters. Several numerical weather prediction models that generate these comprehensive data sets are routinely being run by the National Oceanic ...
