Podcast: A Trip to the Scottish Islands - On-Site Checks & Calibration
Source: OTT HydroMet
The Scottish Islands are, undoubtedly, a beautiful part of the world. Amid awesome cliffs, green valleys, and wild beaches, the main means of transport are the ferries bringing people and cars from one island to another. To ensure safe ferry traffic, the landing stages are equipped with environmental monitoring instruments for water and weather measurements.
Dedicated support prolongs the system’s life span
Ferry captains rely on accurate information on water level, wind, and further weather parameters. They pull this data from OTT HydroMet sensors sited at the peer. Robin Guy is installing and maintaining these sensors. In this episode, he tells about his life as a service engineer and how his team contributes to safe ferry traffic and a longer life span of the used technology even in the harshest conditions.
Tune in and learn about:
- Environmental monitoring for Scottish ferry traffic
- Possibilities and importance of on-site checks and calibration
- The colorful life of a service engineer
Technology Power - Leice Provides 3D Wind Field Monitoring Services for the Emergent Fire Fighting at the Laoshan BeiLu Mountain
On the afternoon of April 19, a mountain fire broke out at the junction of Chengyang District and Laoshan District in Qingdao. After receiving the notification from the municipal emergency management department, Qingdao Leice Transient Technology Co., Ltd. quickly started the emergency response, and cooperated with Ocean University of China to form an emergency service team. The scanning Lidar was set up within 100 meters away from the fire scene to start emergency monitoring. As the saying goes: The wind...
Clarity Rolls Out Node-S 2, Now a Platform for Air Quality Monitoring
Clarity Movement Co. today introduced Node-S 2, the exciting second-generation hardware component of its complete air quality monitoring solution, now re-imagined and re-engineered to be a platform for a wider range of air quality measurements. Now, for the first time, the Node-S 2 supports new add-on modules incorporated into a Clarity network, which expands the range of measurements processed by a Clarity solution. The new Node-S 2 also performs at greater efficiency than ever before, with longer battery life....
Sentinel 6 Goes Live,a welcome addition to Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform
The Sentinel-6 which was launched back in 11/22/2020 has just finished calibration and is now operational. Sentinel-6 is equipped with a Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) altimeter and an Advanced Microwave Radiometer for Climate (AMR-C). This enables Sentinel-6 to acquire measurements with better accuracy and less noise with respect to Jason-3 satellite regarding maritime. Specifically among other data Sentinel-6 provides data regarding the wind speed , the wave height and the sea height. This is very...
Fulcrum3D Sodar assesses resources for green hydrogen specialist Infinite Blue Energy
Green Hydrogen specialist Infinite Blue Energy have completed the installation of a Fulcrum3D SODAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging) weather monitoring system at IBE’s landmark green hydrogen project Arrowsmith. The data collected from the SODAR will support the Final Investment Decision (FID) and allow fine tuning of the final design of power infrastructure. The SODAR system analyses local winds and sunlight, enabling the final design of wind turbines and solar panels to be optimised for the planned production...
Reintroducing the OTT SVR 100
The Surface Velocity Radar OTT SVR 100 now comes with an integrated SDI-12 interface making it the ideal sensor to collect surface water velocity measurements. This simple and compact radar sensor provides data during floods or times of high suspended sediments. It comes with all the benefits of non-contact measurement by being installed above the water, making it safe from rising water levels or floating debris. Only the OTT SVR 100 has an ultra-compact mounting design with flexible angle of inclination for...
