Three Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Used in Weather Forecasting



The UAV applications in weather monitoring are increased and in the future, many places on the Earth is slowly becoming inaccessible to human being due to climate change and its impacts like wildfire, flood, etc. This video shows the three most used UAVs in weather monitoring and forecasting.

Airmar’s 150WX WeatherStation

 UK’s National Oceanography Centre (NOC) has selected this UAV for monitoring and gathering weather information with the help of its 150WX WeatherStation Instrument. This instrument can measure wind speed, air temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity data for a long duration.

Hobby king Bixler 2.0 + Weather Monitoring Sensors

A Hobbyking Bixler 2.0 plane fitted with multiple sensors which can measure humidity, temperature, and CO levels. A wireless camera is mounted in the aircraft for providing visual inputs to the user. Various pollutants can also be recognized and identified. This new project had modified an existing unmanned vehicle into a sophisticated weather monitoring station at much less cost compared to other available UAVs.



New Drones of OSU

Oklahoma State University is developing new drones to gather information from more parts of the Earth’s atmosphere. This will help forecasters to predict the weather after one hour also. Their drones are utilized to gather climatic information from more parts of the troposphere to identify the exact correlations that exist between the causal parameters of weather patterns.

Five most innovative and sustainable water bottles

Cover Feature: Five most innovative water bottles selected by ODM V2 Five most innovative water bottles Water bottles are now becoming smart. Recently launched water bottles have the capability to track your hydration level and can remind you to drink water when the hydration level is below a predefined level. Some water bottles can either increase or decrease the temperature of the water in the container. Some alternatives come with blue tooth speaker/stirrer/fuser/wifi etc electronic devices. Some variation of smart water bottles has the ability to self-purify when needed. Here in this feature, we try to find the most innovative smart water bottles that are available on the eCommerce sites with the help of ODM. Now let us continue with the regular features : News about Sustainability Audi e-tron's used batteries in e-rickshaws by Nunam A new study finds inactive yeast could be effective as an inexpensive, abundant, and simple material for removing lead contamination from drinking

Five Most Popular English Movies (Fiction) on “Climate Change and its Impacts on Water Resources”

Students working in the field of climate change and water resource modeling often complain that they can’t see what they are predicting. They are confused about the reliability of their models and depend on some statistical indices to analyze the accuracy of their predictions. But if they want to have an idea about the reality of their predictions then they must watch the following five movies which simulate the future based on one or more climate change based impacts:.....

7 most recent application of GIS in the identification of suitable location for rain water harvesting

The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models. Below are the seven recent case studies which demonstrate the procedure of location selection for RWH. 1) Case Study of Kiambu County-Kenya The ideal sites for five rainwater harvesting structures (bench terraces, ch
