The Hydro-Meteorological Weather Station from Komoline is used to study the hydrologic cycle, the available water resources, and rainfall statistics. The station is also used to observe the transfer of water and heat between the land surface and the lower atmosphere over longer periods of time, in order to predict climate change.
The weather station collects, transmits, stores, and receives real-time hydro-meteorological data. Cutting-edge technology is used to make available accurate hydro-meteorological data from remote locations and under extreme weather conditions. The precision sensors enable gathering of accurate environmental information about many parameters such as temperature, wind patterns, rain, solar radiation, humidity, evaporation, and air quality. Based on the observations, forecasts are prepared on precipitation and expected rain.
The indigenously built station is used for applications such as weather monitoring, flood monitoring & control, pollution monitoring, irrigation scheduling, water management, transport, defense, and non-conventional energy.
