WindSonic provides data to help predict dust storms

Dust storms have an enormous impact both locally but also travel across continents. Many originate from the empty quarter desert stretching across the Arabian peninsula, the world’s largest sand desert.

Gill WindSonic is among a series of sensors providing data to help predict dust storms in the region and understand their impact on solar power efficiency, which is emerging as the key green energy source in this area.
