Update of the Italian national agro-meteorological network
CAE has won the CREA tender for the supply and maintenance of 39 meteorological stations of the Italian national agro-meteorological network. The measured agro-meteorological quantities are used for the reconstruction of meteorological events and the monitoring of the agricultural season. The sensors used include: rain gauges, radiometers, thermo-hygrometers, leaf-wetness sensors, thermometers for surface and soil temperatures...
Measurements of soil moisture and snow water equivalent: the revolution starts with cosmic rays
The collaboration between CAE and Finapp aims at revolutionizing the way these important measures are performed. The solution that has been developed integrates the innovative probe, patented by the Venetian start-up, which uses CRNS technology to measure soil moisture and Snow Water Equivalent on a range basis, in depth and in real-time. The advantages compared to point sensors suggest that this will be the new technological standard and it will have an important impact in agriculture, as far as the mitigation of hydrogeological instability and the prevention of wildfires are concerned...
Emilia-Romagna: the new agro-meteorological network is open hardware
CAE has won the tender for the updating of the agro-meteorological network of Emilia-Romagna Region, managed by Arpae. After a first development phase of the open source monitoring station project, called "Stima", 44 new automatic agro-meteorological stations will be installed and equipped with...
Po River: new investments to protect water quality
CAE has installed a new multiparameter probe for water quality in a spot where the monitoring of the Po River is strategic: Pontelagoscuro. In agreement with ARPAE-SIMC, owner of the station, the District Authority has promoted the installation and maintenance of this probe for at least three years; therefore, the following parameters will be automatically and continuously measured: water temperature, electrical conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, Redox potential, turbidity...
Swiss precision chooses CAEtech rain gauges
Three stand-alone rain gauges PG4i installed in Switzerland as part of a project that studies how rainfall affects changes in groundwater quality, in terms of the presence of contaminants such as pesticides, bacteria. When springs are frequently used as drinking water resources, maintaining a high water quality is crucial.
