  • Multiple Reports Forecast Dire Climate Change Impacts

    A series of reports published for the UK and US governments have predicted profound consequences, should climate change continue unabated. The UK’s Environment Agency estimates that summer temperatures could be up to 5.4˚C hotter by 2070 depending on greenhouse gas emissions, while London’s sea levels may rise by up to 1.15 metres by 2100. Meanwhile, a report mandated by the US ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sustainable Caribbean Wastewater Strategy – St. Lucia Case Study

    Island Water Technologies Inc. (IWT) was contracted by the Canaries Community Improvement Foundation (Canaries, St. Lucia) to undertake a wastewater feasibility report which was financed through the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Program (SGP) under the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The scope of the project involved working with community representatives, to determine ...

  • 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. ...

  • News from the Road Maintenance Depot in Offenburg, Germany

    In winter 2015, we equipped our fleet with the first mobile pavement sensor MARWIS to improve our winter service. For this first application in Offenburg, we integrated the innovative sensor into the existing monitoring software "TraceMate" from blueworld. based in Cologne, Germany. It displays the MARWIS data in matching colors on a map. ...

  • Volatile Organic Compounds measurement in tropical and temperate climates: Concentration levels in urban and rural areas

    Rapid urbanization and economic development in past decades have led to air pollution problems such as excess of nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Semivolatile Organic Compounds (SVOCs). Motor vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, chemical solvents as well as biogenic emissions are the major anthropogenic sources of VOCs. Depending on the area ...

  • MARWIS supports efficient de-icing of aircrafts

    Let´s think about a wintry scene at the Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam, NL): De-iceing machines surrounding an aircraft engulfed in clouds of smoke. Workers are using large-nozzle hosepipes to douse the aircraft in a special fluid that will de-ice it and keep it de-iced so that it can safely depart. As you may can imagine, the de-icing process takes time as well as manpower and significantly ...

  • Using the HydraProbe Soil Sensor for Determination of Flood Risk in the New York State Mesonet

    In January 2014, the Department of Homeland Security established the New York State Early Warning Weather Detection System. The centerpiece of the system is the New York State Mesonet, a network of 125 weather stations across the state, with at least one site in every county. Each site measures temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, pressure, radiation, and soil information (provided by ...

  • The Basics of Evapotranspiration

    Evapotranspiration (ET) represents the loss of water from the Earth’s surface from the combination of direct evaporation and plant transpiration. ET is usually expressed as a rate such as inches per day. Knowledge of ET is important for irrigation scheduling but it is also an important factor for other land use applications such as septic tank drain fields, watershed level budgeting, and ...
