Wireless Network of Meteorological Stations A Wireless Weather Meteorological Network covers the wider (urban and peri-urban) area of the city of Heraklion with 14 Stations. All Stations are equipped with Air Temperature (TAir)/ Relative Humidity (RH) Sensors, 7 Stations are equipped with Wind Speed / Wind Direction Sensors and 1 Station is equipped with a Rain Bucket and a Total Solar Radiation Sensor, providing on-line intra-urban meteorological measurements. For more information see here.
Flux Towers: Two Flux Towers are installed in the city of Heraklion monitoring turbulent sensible and latent heat fluxes, net all-wave radiation flux and CO2 flux. Both are equipped with IRGASON Integrated CO2/H2O Open-Path Gas Analysers, 3D Sonic Anemometers and CNR1/CNR4 Net Radiometers. For more information see here.
PhenoCams The Remote Sensing Lab of IACM operates phenocams installed in Berlin, Heraklion and Paris in the framework of the urbisphere ERC Synergy Grant. For more information see here.
Seismological Station A seismological stationwas established in 2009 at IACM for continuous monitoring of the seismicity in the area of Heraklion. The station is linked to the Hellenic Seismological Broadband Network of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA_HL). For more information see here.
Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) with Hyperspectral Camera equipped with the HySpex Mjolnir Hyperspectral Imaging System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Its Hyperspectral Camera covers a wide spectrum of ultraviolet/visible/near infrared measurements (400 - 2500nm). For more information see here.
Field Spectroradiometer A Field Portable Spectroradiometer (RS-3500) covers the full-spectrum of ultraviolet/visible/near infrared measurements (350-2500 nm) with just one scan. It can be operated by one person and is accompanied with a handheld Computer. For more information see here.
Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) System AERONET deploys ground-based remote sensing providing observations of spectral aerosol optical depth (AOD), inversion products, and precipitable water in diverse aerosol regimes and adopts Sun and Lunar scenarios for collecting spectral measurements of the atmosphere. For more information see here.
Very High Spatial Resolution Satellite Imagery Series of Very High Spatial Resolution Satellite Imagery are acquired from commercial satellite platforms. Most of them cover urban areas providing the spatiotemporal evolution of the respective cities. For more information see here.
