Launching at the event, the SONA & ZEN from Sieltec Canarias is a complete cutting-edge solution for monitoring clouds and the atmospheric aerosol.
The new system consists of two lines of measurements: real-time data and analysis by capturing and processing all-sky images with a high-resolution camera with a wide field-of-view, and a zenital radiometer to calculate real-time aerosol optical depth (AOD).
The completely new instrumentation for AOD detection is constructed using robust components and long-lasting materials, which have been combined with easy-to-use software. The latest version of SONA & ZEN displays highly accurate information and clear data in cloud detection and atmospheric aerosol at just the touch of a button. At Meteorological Technology World Expo, the company will present an online demonstration with real-time data of cloud nowcasting and AOD observations, where visitors can learn more about the features of this device and see how it can be adapted to fit their needs.
