Previously available lightning insight only tells half a story when it comes to protecting against the significant damage done by lightning in the U.S. each year, according to Chris Vagasky, meteorologist and lightning expert for Vaisala Xweather. The company’s innovation provides accurate data on the potential for damage from each lightning strike. Vagasky also used the improved data at the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting today to finally answer a question causing debate amongst meteorologists: exactly how often does lightning strike in the U.S.?
Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurements, commits to set a near-term science-based target aligned with the requirements of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Vaisala’s commitment includes decreasing its direct Scope 1 and especially indirect Scope 3 emissions by 2030. The more detailed target and methods to achieve it will be set based on calculations in 2022, after which the target is sent for validation to SBTi in 2023.
Vaisala ’s road weather service selected by TomTom to improve driver safety TomTom integrates Vaisala’s environmental data capabilities into its Hazard Warnings service to deliver time-critical alerts for road weather hazards.
Vaisala help s improve meteorological observations and mitigate impacts of flooding in Poland Vaisala will help the Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – National Research Institute to build up local capabilities to tackle effects of extreme weather due to climate change. Outstanding environmental observations, forecasting, and early warning systems help safeguard both lives and property. This will be even more important in the future as extreme weather events , such as the floods seen across Europe this summer , are forecast to become more frequent.
