Vaisala, the global leader in environmental and industrial measurement, including comprehensive lightning data, has developed the capability to distinguish cloud-to-ground lightning strokes that contain continuing current, the most damaging of lighting strokes. This first-of-its-kind technology offers precision in identifying these strokes, which can last up to 1,000 times as long as a typical lighting stroke and may be more likely to cause fire or other extreme heat-related damage.
"Our patent-pending technique is a game-changer in lightning detection. For the first time, industries where charge transfer from lightning is a threat, including electric utilities, oil and gas, wind farms, and land management organizations, can identify and target the small percentage of lightning strokes most likely to cause asset damage or start fires," said Brooke Pearson, Vaisala's Global Solutions Manager for Lightning.
These are 10 Jetbroom snow removal vehicles and 2 Airport De-icers. A total of 18 jetbrooms, 2 de-icing vehicles, 1 Pony multipurpose carrier and an ice early-warning system (AWIS) from Boschung are now in use at Dalian Airport.
The Chinese port city of Dalian on the Yellow Sea has an important aviation hub with its Dalian Zhoushuizi airport. Flights to and from Japan, Korea and Russia as well as numerous domestic flights are handled here. Dalian has a continental climate influenced by the monsoon, with humid summers and cold winters. During the cold months, the average temperature drops to below zero with considerable precipitation, so the airport has to provide the necessary capacity for winter maintenance.
The latest durable, reliable, flexible and cost-effective data logger/transmitter to deliver data you can trust.
OTT HydroMet, a global leader in hydrologic and meteorologic instrumentation and solutions, introduces the Sutron XLink family, the Xlink 100 and 500, for the gathering and transmitting of environmental data. XLink 100/500 combines easy to use, intuitive software offering versatility and programmability. This combination assists the user to gather, store, and access large amounts of data using either cellular or Iridium transmission. The XLink 100/500 seamlessly integrates most environmental sensors, including smart, digital, and analog, while supporting common measurement protocols and interfaces, including SDI-12.
“We are very excited about this product launch, it builds upon the success of its predecessor, the xLink-1 family, and on the horsepower, ease of use, modularity and flexibility of the Satlink3 family combined with over 100 years of building quality and durable products to offer best in class site controller at a very competitive price”, says OTT HydroMet Global Product Manager Sherif Ahmed.
Sometimes factors such as cost, space, and ease of use make your search for research-grade weather sensors a difficult one.

Kolkata, 27th September 2018: Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) with support from Asian Development Bank (ADB) as a part of the Kolkata Environment and Investment Improvement Program (KEIIP) has introduced India’s first comprehensive city-level early flood warning system (FEEWS). The FEEWS was launched in the esteemed presence of Mr. Sovan Chatterjee, Hon’ble Mayor on 27 September at a seminar organized at the Taj Bengal. Hon’ble Mayor said that the FFEWS set up by the civic body set up with financial assistance from Asian Development Bank(ADB) will forecast and at the same time provide real time information on inundation, temperature, air quality, and other climate related data through sensor nodes that will be installed at more than 400 vulnerable points in the city.
delivery of the first ever commercially owned and operated space-based passive microwave radiometer for atmospheric observation to Clyde Space in Glasgow, Scotland, for satellite integration. Employing proven technology utilized in many larger weather monitoring platforms such as the Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) aboard the Joint Polar Satellite System, the innovative OMS radiometer will deliver highly-accurate temperature, humidity, and precipitation data critical for business decisions at a fraction of the cost of heritage government programs.
The mission is part of the In-Orbit Demonstrator (IOD) Program, funded by Innovate UK and managed by the Satellite Applications Catapult. OMS is on track to launch six to eight satellites in 2019 to establish its Global Environmental Monitoring System (GEMS) constellation.
The latest release of Delta-T Devices’ DeltaLINK Software (v3.7), in combination with its GP2 Data Logger and relevant sensors, enables the full ASCE/FAO-56 Penman-Monteith equation for calculating reference evapotranspiration (ETo).
This enhancement also applies to the WS-GP2 Weather Station – an advanced research-grade system.
ETo is calculated by the GP2 Data Logger using the available measurements of relative humidity, wind speed, solar radiation, and air temperature. This ET implementation includes the ability to vary crop albedo/LAI, canopy resistances, crop height and sensor heights.
The functionality can be easily accessed by users as a selectable recording option within DeltaLINK. Calculated ET can be recorded as hourly and daily values – and may be used in further bespoke calculations or to guide field irrigation decisions.

British energy provider Scottish Power with a number of its Optimus OPT100 Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitors. The DGA monitors are installed by Elimpus Ltd to provide real-time updates on the transformer condition at key sites.
At a site in Scotland's central belt, the OPT100 will give continuous updates on a 1000MVA auto-transformer, helping to protect it against the effects of solar flares: periods when intense high-energy radiation is emitted from the sun's surface, causing radio and magnetic disturbances on Earth.
