Hydro-Meteorology

Climate change makes for more extreme weather. The main reasons for this are wind and precipitation.That is why an increasing number of meteorological and hydrological monitoring networks are coming together. Global coverage with hydro-meteorological measuring technology is varied. Very old and very modern (new) measuring networks are used for climate monitoring worldwide. And there are still large gaps, for example on the oceans.

Sample of hydro-meteorological (HydroMet) applications:

Climate research, reliable short, medium and long-term forecasts and timely alarms in extreme weather are classical tasks of weather monitoring. This requires dense monitoring networks and accurate measurement data in real time. The applications vary. The budgets are also different worldwide. Open technologies are therefore required: modularity, variant diversity and simple plug and play installations.
