This article describes how the Chinese University of Hong Kong studies outdoor 3D radiant fluxes. Measurements of short and long wave radiant fluxes can be merged to describe outdoor Tmrt.
Mexico has a wealth of different climates, making it a place of choice to study the weather. The Meteorología of Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) monitors and studies all these weather systems for research purposes.
This article from Sensirion discusses NIST traceability and ISO standards, and why they are important to sensor measurement.
The Alpine Research Station Furka (ALPFOR), located in the Swiss mountains, is monitoring the impact of humans on alpine nature, notably by measuring the air quality in the region. This article describes their methods and findings.
The past decades have seen a clear increase in extreme weather events, triggered by the rise in
temperature and climate change. Those events make meteorological monitoring more critical than ever, as accurate measurements can save lives by forecasting disasters.
Especially in the light of recent events, people counting is a critical technology for any company to own and use. This article describes everything there is to know about occupancy monitoring and why it has become so important.
This article gives an overview of world standards in UV measurements and what type of UV Radiometer is best suited for different situations.
This article explains how the UV Index is derived from field measurements and is used to classify different types of skin and what levels of UV are considered safe and unsafe for each.
This article showcases the new UVS series of Radiometers - keeping up with the legacy of a range that defined industry standards in UV measurement for over 15 years.
Whether industrial or environmental, sensors are technical pieces of equipment that require precise calibration. This article explains why regulation on calibration would be beneficial for all industries.
