Measuring Solutions for Meteorological Applications


Daily weather forecast relies on the precise measurement of weather parameters. The science of numerical weather prediction aims to describe the daily hydrologic cycle in numbers - humidity plays an important role in this - data errors will multiply during calculations.

Humidity and temperature values influence weather calculations e.g. through the water vapour balance equation - this formula expresses the influence of humidity through rain & condensation, and vice versa.

Incorrect measurement or incomplete humidity data directly leads to wrong predictions of a huge number of weather phenomena; this can include the condensation altitude of clouds, locations of hyetal regions, fog layers and storms.
