Webinar: Clouds and atmospheric transmission how ceilometers can contribute to solar applications

The energy yield in solar applications depends on the atmospheric transmission and scattering. Join this webinar to learn how our ceilometers provide data on clouds, precipitation, cloud cover, and particles in the air and can thus be a useful supplement to radiation measurement methods. Holger Wille, Product Manager at OTT HydroMet, is our expert for environmental monitoring based on optical measurement principles.
