Meteodrones to Master the Weather

In an effort to improve the forecasts of fog, low stratus clouds and thunderstorms, Meteomatics, supported by the Federal office of Cilvil Aviation, has developed the Meteodrones.

Since last summer more than 100 test flights were conducted, collecting vertical profiles of temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction up to 1.5km above ground.

At this Google Tech Talk, Dr. Martin Fengler will showcase some of the collected data, explain how it can dramatically change weather forecasting, and present the most recent development of the Meteodrone.
