Some meteorological instrumentation is provided by the Leonardo Germany and Radiometer Physics companies, and the partners have said they plan to work on the specification and installation of a permanent facility incorporating the plate lines during the next two years.
The suite of meteorological instrumentation incorporated in these early networks had a focus on providing a better understanding of the water balance through the estimation of reference evapotranspiration and automated, remote measurements of precipitation.
1.C) Final Replacement of measuring equipment1.D) Preventive and corrective maintenance of the meteorological instrumentation pertaining to the network of air quality.
This step is especially important for a remote, Arctic coastal environment, which can pose many challenges for the reliable operation of meteorological instrumentation. While manual procedures are quite valuable, particularly for shorter-term datasets in which the complete metadata are known, the use of manual procedures alone is not possible for longer-term datasets that would require heavy manual workloads.
Alongside SEVIRI, the Anglo-European Astrium joint venture is responsible for a range of operational and planned satellite meteorological instrumentation packages that include the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU)-B, the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB), the Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT), the Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS) and the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN).
