Meteorological Instruments for Data Capture in Pollution and Environmental Studies
With environmental and pollution studies conducted in a variety of fixed and remote locations, it is necessary to select sensing equipment with flexible mounting options. In addition to mounting to fixed facilities (on a building-mounted pole for example), sensors used remotely are typically mounted to a tripod for flexible and rapid deployment.
Accurate Environmental & Plume Modelling
It is essential to capture multiple environmental parameters for accurate analysis of pollution, environmental conditions and plume modelling. Typical parameters include wind speed and direction, temperature and humidity.
