Private weather forecasting company Skymet Weather Services has raised about $8-10 million (about Rs 51-64 crore at current exchange rate) from Germany-based InsuResilience Investment Fund. The investor acquired a 26.8 per cent stake, including that of investors, in the company.
The new MesoPRO, MetPRO, and WxPRO weather stations are ideal for customers who need research-grade measurements in a new weather station, but may not have the time to design a complete custom system.
The PRO-series weather stations consist of a datalogger, power supply, communication method, instrument mounts, and a suite of meteorological sensors that measure wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, solar radiation, precipitation, soil water content, and soil moisture. These measurements can be used to calculate evapotranspiration, growing-degree days, wind chill, dew point, and other weather-related parameters.
