  • As fast as lightning: The new weather sensor with lightning detection

    Up to now, there was little evidence to prove that damage or fires were caused by lightning. Lightning strikes can not only cause dangerous fires but can also give rise to great financial losses in the case of surge damage. This is especially critical for smart grids, solar panels and wind turbines, but also for building insurance, outdoor events and the forestry sector. “WS800”, the ...

  • Weather extremes provoked by trapping of giant waves in the atmosphere

    “An important part of the global air motion in the mid-latitudes of the Earth normally takes the form of waves wandering around the planet, oscillating between the tropical and the Arctic regions. So when they swing up, these waves suck warm air from the tropics to Europe, Russia, or the US, and when they swing down, they do the same thing with cold air ...

  • Hot weather on its way - Check the condition of your cooling tower

    The approach of summer is a good time to check the performance and, more importantly, the physical condition of your cooling towers. After all, it’s easier to repair a tower when weather conditions don’t put a strain on its cooling capacity. A cooling tower passes air over tiny droplets or the exposed surface of a water film. In both cases, a small amount of water is vaporized, ...
