Wireless Network of Meteorological Stations The Remote Sensing Lab of IACM has installed a Wireless Weather Meteorological Network of 14 stations covering the wider area of the city of Heraklion. 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 The Remote Sensing Lab of IACM has installed two Flux Towers 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.
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. The Remote Sensing Lab of IACM has installed and operates an AERONET System including a Cimel Multiband Photometer at Heraklion city center. For more information see here.
Seismological Station The Wave propagation group of IACM has installed a seismological station at IACM-FORTH campus 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.
Experimental tank The Laboratory of Underwater Acoustic Measurements of IACM owns and operates an experimental tank (2,5m x 1,5m x 1,3m) with electronically controlled system of axes with two independent arms and four degrees of freedom, a pulser-receiver, a waveform generator, oscilloscopes, Signal and Power Amplifiers, Data Acquisition cards (on board and USB), Ultrasonic transducers (200-700kHz) and laboratory omni-directional hydrophones (10Ηz -120kHz). For more information see here.
Aspirated Radiation Shield and UV & Solar Radiation sensors The Coastal and Marine Research Lab
of IACM owns/operates three Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus, 24-hr Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield and UV & Solar Radiation sensors, meteorological stations, currently deployed in various areas. The sensor suite combines an anemometer measuring wind speed, a direction vane measuring wind direction, a rain collector, a temperature and a humidity sensor. The particular Met. Stations, are very versatile and easily installed in a variety of climatic conditions and different terrains and makes them ideal for accurate measuring campaigns.
Field Spectroradiometer The Remote Sensing Lab
of IACM owns 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.
