The wind is the architect of avalanches!
How safe are your roads and railways during winter if there are snow drifts?
During winter wind can move big quantities of snow from one place to another. Snow drifts can increase the risk of avalanches in the mountains and can increase the risk for your roads, railways, and villages.
We have developed a unique solution to measure snow drift and snow blow (mass flux or mass transportation in different heights).
The Snow Drift Sensor (SND) is an extremely robust and easy to integrate sensor (via SDI-12 and analog interface integration). It is equipped with a highly sensitive microphone, which detects the impact of snow and ice particles on the sensor. The sound pressure is then converted into a very easy understandable unit (g/m²/s). The sensor is made with robust materials which allows you to install the SND in extreme environments.
