For more than 20 years, Earth Networks has operated the world’s largest and most comprehensive weather observation, lightning detection, and climate (Greenhouse Gas) networks. Our patented severe weather detection capabilities enable enterprises and consumers to make informed decisions to protect human lives and safeguard capital assets. Data from our global networks power our patented Early Warning Systems, which provide the detailed information and the industry's fastest alerts to severe weather, when minutes matter.
Earth Networks operates the world’s largest weather network, with more than 10,000 neighborhood-level sensors installed at schools, stadiums and businesses — where individuals live their lives.
Researchers have long known that in-cloud lightning often serves as an early indicator of extreme weather – from heavy rain and hail to dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and tornadoes.
Greenhouse Gas Network
Just as Earth Networks is meeting the need for real-time local weather, we are now fulfilling the need for precise greenhouse gas data by deploying a network of GHG monitoring instruments on a large scale.
Cameras provide crisp live images that make it possible for owners and operators to monitor critical assets and community infrastructure during weather events and day-to-day operations.
Our sensor networks provide real-time weather information, total lightning data, and greenhouse gas observations at thousands of schools, sports stadiums, broadcast TV stations, towers and buildings.
Brazil frequently experiences very intense thunderstorms, with lightning strikes concentrated in densely populated southern areas, including São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Guinea Meteorological Demonstration Project
In 2013, a public-private partnership between Direction Nationale de La Meteorolgie (NMS of Guinea, West Africa) and Earth Networks paved the way for the first-ever operation of a comprehensive, technologically advanced early warning system for monitoring and alerting to severe weather in a Least Developed Country (LDC).
