The HM-1 HAZMAT weather stations are designed for first responders to provide important real-time information for monitoring and responding to incidents.
The HM-1 HAZMAT weather stations are designed for first responders to hazardous material incidents. The weather station provides important real-time information for monitoring and responding to incidents. The long range radios on our hazmat stations allow responders to monitor the situation in real-time and from a safe distance.
The HAZMAT stations work in conjunction with CAMEO/ALOHA software that enables responders to monitor plume dispersion. CAMEO was developed by Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Office (CEPPO) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office of Response and Restoration (NOAA). The software was developed for front-line chemical emergency planners and responders. CAMEO helps in evaluating and predicting dispersion patterns.

RainWise is one of the oldest players in the weather monitoring market, having been around since 1974. For reference, that’s only 4 years younger than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Through the years this Maine-based company has logged several advancements in the field starting with RainWise’s very first product, the tipping bucket rain gauge, which is now an industry standard. Since then they have introduced the first consumer digital weather station and the first wireless consumer weather station among other pioneering innovations. With more than 40 years of experience, the products that RainWise produces today are just as inspired.Read More
A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
