In what fields do we work?
With the first station taking first measurements on 1998 at 2080 m height, this network was during a long time a pioneer in alpine automatic measurments. This project has been for interMET not just a project, it has been our workbench that made our human and technical skills to be taken almost to the limit.
Based on our experience in monitoring in alpine climates we were asked to design, install and maintain "the best" hydro-meteorological network that could be imagined in a mountain area. Considering how difficult it is to achieve reliable measurements in this environments we have proposed and installed a network base on gravimetric rain gauges, snow height sensors, 4 components radiation and specially designed sensors and systems for this environments.
Laser based disdrometers seem complex equipment but are fantastic for measuring precipitation characteristics like size and velocity of water drops or snow flakes. Our client wanted to monitor precipitation very intensively in a small area and we were asked to install more than a dozen of these in an are of less than 8 km square! No problem on replicating the same system for several locations, but they wanted size and velocity of precipitation every minute!. Here the challenge was data logging and reporting taking into account the huge amount of data sampled. It was solved designing an ad-hoc logger that showed an excellent performance even being solar powered.
The objective of this project was to have a rugged, compact housing for scientific quality meteorological sensors, data logging and telecommunication equipment. This housing should be easy to install and make minimum impact on the environment: no fences, no civil work and low visual impact.
