Innovative Atmospheric Monitoring: Creative Techniques with Limited Resources (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


Innovative Atmospheric Monitoring: Creative Techniques with Limited Resources addresses a need for educators, researchers, and operational institutes to find solutions to increase atmospheric monitoring capacities with limited resources. The book addresses the need to provide examples of how to use observations to better understand the atmosphere and how to implement weather monitoring technology for use with diverse learners.

The authors present an applied approach, describing the need for innovative systems. Many examples, tools, designs, and other resources are included to enable the readers to start making and using their own sensors and to help instructors design educational experiences that guide students to use these monitoring systems to answer relevant societal questions. Innovative Atmospheric Monitoring addresses the issue of having access to sensors for monitoring and studying the atmospheric system. Many institutions from universities and national meteorological and hydrological services have limited resources to acquire equipment. This book provides low-cost, reliable innovative solutions to build and use sensor equipment. As such, it is most relevant for audiences in atmospheric science.
