Customize Your Precipitation Measuring

Precipitation data is critical for local and regional weather observation, watershed monitoring and water resource management. It also plays an important role in forecasting for applications including airports, roads, flood warning, and water supplies.

OTT HydroMet offers a large portfolio of precipitation technologies ranging from high-precision lasers and maintenance-free Doppler radar disdrometers, to precipitation gauges based on the weighing principle, as well as tipping buckets.

Combined with various options for datalogging, transmission, and power supply, these systems are suitable for remote installation to transmit data to local data centers.

Webinar: The new Lufft WS100 Radar Precipitation Sensor

In this webinar, we present the technology and the application fields of the new Lufft WS100 radar precipitation sensor. We also explain what distinguishes it from other measuring principles and what advantages it offers.

“How Does Rain Fall?” Infographic

We experience precipitation regularly in our day-to-day lives, but how does water navigate through the water cycle and end up eventually falling back to Earth? What defines rain and the different states of water particles falling from the sky? While rain itself might seem like a straightforward topic, its processes play very complex roles in our water cycle and weather patterns.

Download the infographic to better understand what influences precipitation, as well as water’s different states within the water cycle.
