Meteorology Podcast: Let’s Talk About the Weather

Episode 1: Sky and Cloud Observation with Ceilometers 

with Holger Wille, Product Manager and expert for lidar systems 

Sky observation is becoming increasingly important for multiple disciplines. With instruments called ceilometers, meteorologists and aviation specialists scan the ceiling for different kinds of clouds. In addition, aerosol particles are highly relevant for studies on climate change and air pollution. In this very first episode of our meteorology podcast, Holger Wille talks about: 

  • Measurement principle of lidar-based instruments 
  • Applications and benefits 
  • OTT HydroMet’s ceilometer portfolio comprising Lufft CHM 15k & CHM 8k

Episode 2: Intelligent Road Weather Monitoring 

with Steven Marks & Manuel Kreißig, road weather specialists

Road conditions and visibility heavily influence drivers’ safety and traffic flow. With a wide range of sensors, road maintenance specialists monitor a variety of meteorological parameters including air and surface temperature, humidity, water film height, freezing temperature, visibility, and more. In this episode we talk about: 

  • Static and mobile road weather sensors  
  • Applications and successful setups to monitor road weather 
  • Trend: intelligent software solutions to support and relieve winter maintenance

Episode 3: Measuring Amount and Type of Precipitation  

with Kurt Nemeth & Brad Guay, experts for precipitation monitoring 

Measuring precipitation is essential for meteorological and climatological purposes, but also for hydrological applications and local communities. Depending on the application and the place of operation, there are different kinds of instruments to detect rain, snow, and hail. In this episode we will talk about: 

  • Different types of precipitation sensors 
  • Challenges of precipitation monitoring in different regions 
  • OTT Pluvio², a weighing rain gauge with 15,000 units deployed worldwide

Now On Air! Episode 5: Back from #AMS2021 – Learnings & Trends    

with Victor Cassella, Meteorologist and Sales Engineer,
Sasha Ivans, Business Dev. Manager – Environmental Meteorology,
and Teddy Soto, Application Development Manager 

Episode 4: Ceilometers in Science Applications    

with Aaron Kennedy, Atmospheric Scientist University of North Dakota,
and Brad Guay, Meteorologist at OTT HydroMet  

A ceilometer can do way more than just observe clouds. Scientists from various disciplines are discovering its strengths and benefits. For our 4th episode, we brought together two experts on Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology. It turns out that, with a bit of creativity, ceilometers are extremely versatile and cost-efficient research instruments. What you can expect from this episode: 

  • Ceilometers tracking wildfire smoke floating over the Atlantic  
  • Observing aerosols for air quality studies  
  • “Ground blizzards” and other astonishing phenomena

The 101st Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) was a special one. For the first time, this renowned event has been held completely virtually. More than 5,000 attendees document the steadily growing interest in meteorology. In this episode, three experienced exhibitors share their impressions and learnings from this event. Besides various and individual findings, they agree on one conclusion: Virtual events hold great potential for sharing knowledge and interacting globally – they will stay with us in the future. Among others, our guests share these learnings from the 101st AMS Annual Meeting:   

  •  Niche applications still hold a huge potential for further technological developments  
  •  COVID-19 fuels the trend of companies providing complete monitoring solutions and support instead of single components  
  • Open protocols and flexible data communication become more important – and complex
