Details

Overview
The Lufft family of multi-parameter weather sensors offer a cost-effective, compact alternative for the acquisition of a variety of measurement parameters on land- and buoy-based weather stations. Depending on the model, each sensor will measure a different combination of weather parameters to meet a wide variety of applications.

Air Temperature & Humidity
Temperature is measured using a highly accurate NTC-resistor, while humidity is measured using a capacitive humidity sensor. Both sensors are located in a ventilated radiation shield to reduce the effects of solar radiation.

Pressure
Absolute air pressure is measured using a built-in MEMS sensor. The relative air pressure referenced to sea level is calculated using the barometric formula with the aid of the local altitude, which is user-configurable on the equipment.

Wind Speed & Direction
The wind sensor uses four ultrasound sensors which take cyclical measurements in all directions. The resulting wind speed and direction are calculated from the measured run-time sound differential.

Compass
The integrated electronic compass can be used to check the north-south adjustment of the sensor housing for wind direction measurement. It is also used to calculate the compass-corrected wind direction.

Solar Radiation
The tiltable pyranometer is intended for shortwave global solar radiation measurements in the spectral range from 300 to 1100nm. The thermopile sensor construction measures the solar energy that is received from the total solar spectrum and the whole hemisphere. The output is expressed in Watts per square meter.

University of Utah Study Shows Arctic Clouds Sensitive to Air Pollution

A new study showing that Arctic clouds are sensitive to air pollution could pave the way for mitigating future problems. “Weather patterns in the Arctic are changing extraordinarily rapidly,” explained Dr. Timothy Garrett, an atmospheric scientist from the University of Utah, which recently completed the study. “We want to understand why so that we better understand their potential impact on lower latitudes where most of us live.” While scientists know that changes in carbon dioxide levels are the biggest player, they are increasingly realizing that clouds play an important role as well. Prior research has shown that air pollution, also referred to as particulate matter, naturally travels northward.
