Environment analytics is the analysis of large data sets at the intersection of observed environmental conditions, ecology and infrastructure.

Current and recent projects within our research group at North Carolina State University:

Products and Resources

Pressure Sensor Networks Dashboard used for research on atmospheric gravity waves. There are currently regional networks in the New York Metro area, Eastern Long Island, Toronto Metro area, and Raleigh, NC using low cost high precision pressure sensors designed and built by Matthew Miller.

Weather-Flow is an extension of the EarthNullSchool tool for greater utility in college-level education. This visualization aid provides a more intuitive depiction of atmospheric flow and interactions among winds, pressure, and temperature and their changes with altitude. Includes current data and archived data back to September 2018.
