What is Wet Bulb Globe Temperature?

Monitoring the environment to effectively assess the risk of heat stress during hot weather athletic and occupational activities. If you've ever been outside on an extremely hot day, you’ve probably felt the impact of heat index—the combination of air temperature and humidity that makes you feel hotter than the temperature of the air itself. While this is a useful indicator for getting a sense of general hot weather conditions, wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) tells a better story of the effect of heat stress on the human body in a specific environment. Heat stress is a serious issue for people...

Monitoring Wind Turbine Performance with Kestrel Weather Meters

Wind power is dependent on wind speed. When evaluating a wind energy site, it is important to gather wind speed, wind direction, and other environmental factors that could affect the energy output. Collecting onsite environmental data prior to installing wind turbines is critical to planning for a successful wind farm. Contractors, equipment manufacturers, and consultants provide estimates that take into consideration site specific conditions, but actual performance can vary considerably. To assess individual turbine performance and know when maintenance may be required, it is necessary to measure the minimum, maximum, and average wind speeds at each installation. When it comes...
