70 years of the DWD - with OTT HydroMet reference sensors

Turning 70 years, the German Weather Service (DWD) is as important as ever. OTT HydroMet, companion and partner, provides various types of reference sensors.

At an age when people usually enjoy retirement, the German Weather Service (DWD) is more in demand and more important than ever. Heavy rain and floods, droughts and crop failures, forest fires and air pollution - extreme weather events that we often used to know only from history lessons or foreign news reports are now hitting Germany and its Central European neighbors at ever shorter intervals.

As one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of environmental monitoring technology, OTT HydroMet has been a companion and close partner of the DWD for decades. On our blog, we published an article on the importance of the work the DWD is doing and how we and our various sensors contribute to that.
