    Building on the proven formula already applied to the hugely successful international show held annually in Europe for the last 10 years, UKi Media & Events has announced the launch of Meteorological Technology Expo North America, which will be staged in Chicago, May 4 & 5, 2022. The expo, which will be held at Chicago’s Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, will focus on the full spectrum of commercial applications of weather forecasting and measurement technologies and services.

    Visitors will include buyers and users of meteorological, hydromet, metocean and environmental monitoring equipment and services from environment agencies, research institutes, NMHSs and weather-critical industries such as aviation, military, transportation (including road and rail), maritime and port authorities, as well as agriculture, offshore and renewable energy, among many others.

    The business consultants said there was no market for the product, yet today FTS sells environmental monitoring solutions worldwide, counts millions in sales, employs over 75 people and is celebrating 40 years of reliability and innovation!

    You have to wonder how the business consultants got it so wrong in 1980. Perhaps they didn’t grasp the importance of remote environmental data monitoring. Maybe they didn’t understand the power of emerging technology. They almost certainly didn’t anticipate the never-say-die attitude of the company’s founder, Bill Cave, and those who have followed him.

    It was the late 1970s when Cave first imagined automating the collection of weather data by marrying radio telemetry to remote electronic monitoring stations. As a researcher with the Canadian Forest Service, he knew the systems were needed. Certain in his vision, he began developing his first prototypes in the basement of his home in Victoria, Canada and by 1980 he was taking out a $30,000 mortgage on his home to incorporate FTS.

    At the beginning of November, as part of the “Serbia National Risk Management Program” project, CAE was awarded a new tender in the Balkan Republic, launched by Belgrade’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Administration, for the supply of meteorological equipment.

    In addition to three complete meteorological stations, the order includes a first relevant supply of PG4i rain gauges. Moreover, to further complete the Customer service, CAE has also included advanced training, aimed at the personnel in charge, focusing on the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of the appliance.

    The three meteorological stations, like almost all CAE stations, will be autonomous from the main power supply: they will be powered by a solar panel and backup battery, and each station will be equipped with state-of-the-art  technology...

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events and exhibitions in the hydrometeorological sector have been cancelled or postponed. But even in these uncertain times, CAE keeps moving forward with several digital initiatives, among which HydrometLATAMVirtual 2021 - a 100% online event for weather, water and climate​ professionals in Latin America.

    HydrometLATAM Virtual 2021, held from March 16 to 18, is the first of its kind in Latin America and hosted more than 858 participants from the region’s National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NHMS), governments, NGOs, experts from the private sector, academia, etc. While travelling is still severely restricted, the event brought together an audience from different countries into a unique virtual platform and helped develop a common understanding between public and private sector in terms of their priorities and partnership needs.

    The Rise Fund, TPG’s global impact investing platform, has announced a US$100m strategic investment in Climavision, a newly launched weather services and intelligence platform powered by a private network of high-resolution radars, GPS-RO data and proprietary software to vastly improve the timing and accuracy of weather forecasting and to fill low-level gaps in existing weather surveillance.

    Climavision was formed out of Enterprise Electronics Corporation (EEC), a commercial supplier of weather radar systems. EEC has a 50-year history and more than 1,200 installations across 95 countries. According to Climavision, by combining lower altitude, proprietary data with machine learning and AI technology, its offering provides 10x higher resolution and more accurate forecasting to address critical coverage gaps left by existing radar networks across the USA.

    Varysian: Hydromet Network – Introduction, guided tour and launch.

    May 2021 will see the launch of Varysian: Hydromet Network, a new platform for education, events and networking for key decision-makers in the hydromet space.

    What is it?
    The Hydromet Network represents the ‘formalising’ of Varysian’s contacts within NMHS, national government departments, large NGOs, key funders, academia and private sector suppliers operating in the hydromet space.

    This experience will crystallise in May, with the launch of a unique digital membership platform that will stream real and virtual events (all accessible afterward, ‘on-demand'); host weekly webinars and allow hydromet professionals to discuss areas of shared concern.

    Extreme weather combined with COVID-19 in a double blow for millions of people in 2020. However, the pandemic-related economic slowdown failed to put a brake on climate change drivers and accelerating impacts, according to a new report compiled by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and an extensive network of partners.

    The report on the State of the Global Climate 2020 documents indicators of the climate system, including greenhouse gas concentrations, increasing land and ocean temperatures, sea level rise, melting ice and glacier retreat and extreme weather. It also highlights impacts on socio-economic development, migration and displacement, food security and land and marine ecosystems.

    2020 was one of the three warmest years on record, despite a cooling La Niña event. The global average temperature was about 1.2° Celsius above the pre-industrial (1850-1900) level. The six years since 2015 have been the warmest on record. 2011-2020 was the warmest decade on record.
