Meteorology is the science dealing with the atmosphere and its phenomena, including both weather and climate. Where did the practice of meteorology come from?
Though it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the origins of meteorology lie in history, many attribute its beginnings to Aristotle, who wrote about metrology way back in 350BC.
Bayanat Engineering Qatar is a reliable meteorology solutions provider in Qatar, spanning various systems and tools. Meteorology is a crucial component within many sectors, the Peninsula Qatar states.
The main sectors that incorporate meteorology into their daily workings include aviation, marine, oil and gas, and military. Countries use meteorology to predict climate change and other phenomena like earthquakes, flooding, and others – this can help prepare and prevent the consequence and minimize risk for its citizens.
Bayanat Engineering is proud to have built some of the world’s leading weather forecasting systems for Qatar’s meteorology department and other government entities in Qatar.
There is various exciting technology in meteorology, here are some of them:
Cloud seeding: If you want to make it rain – cloud seeding is an answer. Cloud seeding involves modifying a cloud’s structure to increase the chance of precipitation. Cloud seeding is one of the most advanced and helpful tools in meteorology.
Rain gauges: A rain gauge is a solution used by meteorologists and hydrologists to gather and measure the amount of liquid precipitation over an area in a predefined area, period. It is used to determine the depth of precipitation (usually in mm) that occurs over a unit area, thus measuring rainfall.
Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS); this is a configurable weather system explicitly designed for airports.
It delivers real-time information about weather conditions continuously to ensure pilots can take off in safe weather conditions. AWOS units most commonly report the latest weather updates in 20-minute intervals. This is ideal for airports that need regular and reliable weather reports to ensure optimal flying conditions for every flight.
Meteorological sensors: They are most typically deployed on buoys, though they are commonly set up on towers and across runways. Like AWOSs, meteorological sensors accurately measure a variety of weather conditions and other aviation affecting factors.
An essential element of meteorology is understanding how climate conditions can change quickly. Meteorological sensors are usually placed near a water body and help measure changes in weather and climate.
There are other solutions and technologies in meteorology that are used in various sectors: MET Forecasting/Visualisation Systems, Runway Visual Range (RVR), Weather RADARs, LIDARs (Windshear/Wake Vortex Measurement), Thermo Dynamic Profiler/RadioMeters, Lightning detection systems, Radiosonde/weather telemetry systems and Weather Decision Support System.
