Environmental Measurements Ltd (EML)

Environmental Measurements Ltd (EML)

Environmental Measurements Ltd (EML) was established in 1985 and has over 25 years of experience in the Hydro-Met market. During this time the company has designed, developed and manufactured an increasingly wide range of instrumentation for meteorological and environmental monitoring including wind speed and wind direction sensors, aerodynamic rain gauges, precipitation sensors, temperature humidity probes, radiation sensor shields (small naturally aspirated stevenson screens), barometric pressure sensors, surface wetness probes, data loggers and automatic weather stations. The company’s flagship product is the ARG100 rain gauge which typically captures over 5% more rainfall than most traditionally-shaped cylindrical gauges due to its unique aerodynamic shape and reduced evaporation-loss properties. It is estimated there are well over 10,000 units installed throughout the world.
