  • Soil climate monitoring in Antarctica

    Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, has an area of about 14 million sq. km. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice, which averages about 2100 m thick. This vast ice sheet contains the earth’s largest fresh water reserve. Of the ice-free ground, only 0.3% is available for soils to form. Currently there are seven soil climate stations in Antarctica, which monitor a range of ambient ...

  • PV Monitoring: Smart Solar Monitoring with Smart Weather Sensors

    A PV installation should earn money. But only if all system components operate without faults, the owner can reap the maximum benefits. That´s why you can only be sure if your system works properly, if you track environmental data in comparison to your actual output, which smart solar monitoring systems offer. Webinar about Increasing Efficiency with ...

  • Outdoor Noise Monitoring with XL2

    A tailored solution for outdoor noise monitoring is now available for the XL2 Sound Level Meter. The new outdoor measurement microphone M2230-WP and the heavy-duty outdoor case ideally complement the XL2 system for unattended noise monitoring.  ...

  • Meteorological Monitoring Alert – Psd Permitting

    AERMOD has replaced ISC in most cases as the preferred air dispersion model for use in PSD/regulatory permitting. AERMOD uses current science to predict the impact of air emissions from multiple sources at receptors located near points of interest. The AERMOD has the ability to use site-specific meteorological parameters to account for variation in wind and stability due to nearby structures, ...

  • Air Monitors wins contract for national PM monitoring network

    Air Monitors Limited is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a contract by the Environment Agency to supply real-time particulate matter (PM) monitors to support the Automatic Urban and Rural Network (AURN). According to the terms of the contract, Air Monitors will supply FIDAS 200 PM monitors for the continuous measurement of particle size for PM10, PM2.5 and as dual instruments which ...

  • Weather Monitoring for Conservation at Fish Barrier

    Migration of the invasive Asian Carp through the Mississippi River system into the Great Lakes has the potential to devastate native fisheries throughout the region. Smith-Root, an environmental engineering firm, has developed a proprietary technology for an electric fish barrier to prevent such migration. Their technology uses the most efficient electric field pattern for guiding the fish with ...

  • Satellite data improve aviation safety

    Thousands of planes are grounded across Europe due to the spread of volcanic ash following the recent eruption under Iceland's Eyjafjallajoekull glacier. Volcanic eruptions eject large amounts of ash and trace gases such as sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere, often reaching the altitudes of scheduled flights. When flying through a volcanic ash cloud, ash particles enter the jet engines which can ...

  • New monitoring network for Scottish ports

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...
