Sep 28 2021
Vaisala are to assist the Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – National Research Institute to bolster regional capabilities to alleviate the effects of extreme weather caused by climate change. Precise environmental data along with accurate forecasting, and early warning systems will help to safeguard lives and property. This will be even more important in the future As extreme weather events, such as the floods that occurred in Europe during summer, are becoming more ubiquitous across the globe – these systems will be an invaluable tool for future extreme events.
Vaisala in cooperation with local partner OMC Envag, will deliver over 1,600 automatic meteorological, climatological, and hydrological measurement stations to Poland. These deliveries will occur over 2021 and 2022 and include cutting-edge measurement solutions for wind, humidity, temperature, visibility, rain and snowfall, cloud height, and barometric pressure.
“This new network is an important part of a Polish flood mitigation project funded by the World Bank. The project aims to increase access to flood protection for people living in selected areas of the Oder River and the Upper Vistula River basins and to enable Poland to mitigate the impact of floods more effectively,” said Jarkko Sairanen, Executive Vice President, Weather and Environment, Vaisala.
