  • Planetary Boundary Layer: Why is it Important?

    The famous statistician George Box said “All models are wrong, but some are useful”—for calculating air quality indices and emissions estimates this is certainly true. One way to increase the utility of models is to use up-to-the-minute, local Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) measurements as an input when generating top-down emissions estimates. ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR Enhances Global Aviation Safety - Case Study

    Monitoring Volcanic Ash provides early warnings of Hazardous Atmospheric Conditions Volcanic ash is a recurring impediment to normal air-traffic operations in Europe, Asia and South America due to potential jet engine damage caused by the razor-sharp particles in dense ash plumes. A notable example is the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland that shut-down air ...
