Innovative spiral design of the MeteoShield Professional begins sea trials on buoys

Marine buoy radiative heating errors to be prevented by the helical MeteoShield Professional.

Marine buoy radiative heating errors to be prevented by the helical MeteoShield Professional.

MeteoShield® Professional begun sea borne testing on marine buoys in the Asia Pacific region last week. Compared to existing multi-plate solar radiation shield technologies and even fan-aspirated shields, it offers a significant improvement in all weather precision for air temperature and air humidity measurement. Compared to fan-aspirated shields, it has the added benefit of superior reliability.

This advantage in measurement precision is hoped to make a significant contribution to the quality of climatological measurements and is poised to increase confidence and precision in quantifying global warming and its associated climatic changes to the region.
