Industrial processing activities can result in pollution emissions
Suspended sand and dust generate semi-permanent patterns of local and regional scales that persist in the atmosphere for several days
Given the uncertainty regarding future dust emissions and their potential large impact in human lives and the economy, the importance of deploying alert mechanisms for dust storms is imperative
World Meteorlogical Organization (WMO) has a mission as a world leader in weather, climate, water, and related environmental issues
WMO contributes to the safety and well-being of people throughout the world, and to the societal and economic benefit of all nations. Sand and Dust storms (SDS) are recognized by WMO as serious events that can affect climate, weather, environment, and jeopardize human health globally
Unlike any other sensors, Raymetrics products are the only systems to provide, scientific grade.
dust measurements to a wide range of up to 20Km
Dust aerosols impact the climate system by influencing the radiation budget, cloud processes, and various biogeochemical cycles. Due to numerous impacts of dust on health, environment and climate, there is high societal and research interest to:
better understand the atmospheric dust process
prevent its unwanted impacts
predict dust transport events Innovative techniques and methodologies contribute to better understanding all related processes to any such event.
Raymetrics, combining almost two decades of innovative LIDAR development with partnerships with scientific leaders, produces an integrated dust monitoring system that provides unsurpassed monitoring capability and accuracy in dust forecasting and early warning
Raymetrics is developing a unique cloud-based platform that integrates LIDAR data with other sensors and information sources to address specific client needs
