  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • Weather monitoring network equipped with Lufft wind sensor VENTUS - Case Study

    In 2010 we won a tender for 30 ultrasonic anemometers (as a part of meteorological weather stations). The National Weather Service of Mexico (CONAGUA) wanted to build weather stations in the southwest of Mexico (States of Chiapas and Tabasco). According to the customer, Ventus-UMB is a very robust, yet precise sensor with a very good price / performance ratio. Moreover, data transmission via ...

  • Amassing Wind Information

    Wind is a variable resource, but not an indecipherable one. Second Wind encourages harnessing the full range of wind sensing technologies that are available today. When it comes to wind information, much attention is focused on the choice of wind measurement technology and data collection practices in wind resource assessment and project design. Right now, wind data plays a limited role in the ...


  • New methods for measuring the wind

    Although computer models of wind flow over terrain have improved dramatically in the past few years, there is still no substitute for data recorded at the site. So you want to build a wind farm. Good for you. With the global drive towards a low carbon economy, it is surely the right way to go for many individuals, companies and, indeed, Governments around the world. As information from the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Visualizing the stories data can tell

    Scientists and technologists are turning numbers about everything from condors to ocean-floor contours into visual representations of environmental issues. We’re living in an era of Big Data, but too often it’s nothing more than a fire hose of numbers and data sets that most would have difficulty understanding. Increasingly, though, entities such as non-governmental ...

  • Smart solar monitoring / PV monitoring with smart weather sensors - Case Study

    When selecting a suitable pyranometer for photovoltaic monitoring the company Solare Datensysteme GmbH decided for the Lufft WS501-UMB All-in-one weather station. According to the company the Pyranometer delivers the most precise measurements for the overall irradiance and serves to measure the exact local prevailing overall irradiance at large plants. The Pyranometer is installed ...

  • Choosing Data Loggers for Your Green Building Project

    Environmental Construction and Energy Projects Require High-Accuracy Devices The green building industry is growing quickly, and successful projects benefit from assessment and evaluation from start to finish. From hospitals to industrial operations to single-family homes, measurements of conditions such as temperature, solar radiation, and energy consumption are essential to carrying out ...

  • Wind-driven SVE system extracts VOCs from landfill

    An innovative soil vapor extraction (SVE) system has operated at the former Ferdula Landfill site in Frankfort, NY, for the past 10 years. The system relies on wind-driven vacuum processes rather than electrically powered air blowers to extract volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the landfill. After a two-year trial beginning in 1998, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ...

  • What is Long Term Noise Monitoring?

    It might sound simple, but long term noise monitoring can mean different things to different people. There is no standard definition for what long term noise monitoring is, but here is a summary that covers the basics. I first presented this presentation at the IOA Eastern Branch meeting and wanted to share my thoughts on what classes as long term noise monitoring. I’ll also discuss ...
