Komoline’s Bio-meteorological Weather Station is used to measure air quality, temperature, solar radiation and other parameters that provide insight into bio-meteorological problems. The problems may relate to food production, human health, protection of endangered flora and fauna or ensuring a comfortable environment for habitation. The data collected is also used to warn the public about hazardous air quality.
Bio-meteorology examines the interaction between plants, bio-aerosols, atmospheric processes and air quality. It overlaps other fields such as agronomy, atmosphere physics and chemistry, bioclimatology, environmental modeling, meteorology, microbiology and plant pathology. For instance, it is known that micro-organisms have an impact on atmospheric processes. Inert particles and air-borne micro-organisms are involved in precipitation and metabolization of chemicals. This modifies the atmosphere and affects the entire ecosystem. The Bio-meteorological weather station from Komoline studies the effect of such linkages on the atmosphere.
Some important features of the weather station are:
- Accurate real-time information provided
- Function reliably in extreme weather conditions
