Synoptic Automatic Weather Stations
PULSONIC offers a complete solution for National Meteorological Agencies that follows WMO and ICAO standards.
The solution is composed of several Synoptic Automatic Weather Stations which monitor weather conditions 24h/7d. Pulsia Synop is designed to be installed in harsh operating environment such as tropical climate, dry climate, etc…
The gathered climate information can be integrated into the existing meteorological system and is compatible with most of the Climate Data Management System (CDMS).
PULSONIC can provide commissioning, training or maintenance anywhere over the world.
Network of Synoptic Weather Stations
What's synoptic observation ?
PULSONIC manufacture Synoptic Automatic Weather Station for several National Meteorological Service in the world to provide near real-time meteorological observation 24/24 hour.
Synoptic observation are made at a specific time :
Synoptic hours : 00h00, 06h00, 12h00, 18h00 (UTC)
Intermediate synoptic hours : 03h00, 09h00, 15h00, 21h00 (UTC).
This timing is respected by each WMO member in the world and it provides an image of meteorological condition everywhere in the world.
Indeed, the observation should be made at the exact time (00) and is disseminated into the WMO network in less than 15 minutes.
A synoptic weather station usually measure the following parameters :
- Wind speed and direction at 10 meters height
- Precipitation / Intensity of precipitation / accumulated of precipitation (24 hours,...)
- Global radiation
- Sunshine duration (usually by calculation)
- Air temperature
- Dew point (by calculation)
- Potential-Evapo-Transpiration (PET)
- Soil temperature
- Actinothermic index
- Relative air humidity
- Atmospheric pressure (Psea,QNH,QFE)
- Present Weather / Past Weather
- Cloud (type, amount, height)
