The first automatic weather station of SIAP+MICROS was opened in Nukus, Uzbekistan, on 14th of April as part of UNDP’s collaboration with the Centre of Hydrometeorological Service under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan for “Developing climate resilience of farming communities in the drought prone parts of Uzbekistan” project in the Republic of Karakalpakstan with financial support of the Adaptation Fund.
The project provides the modernization of 10 meteorological stations and 2 hydrological posts in 5 pilot regions of Karakalpakstan focusing on introduction of climate change adaptation measures, increasing the resilience of farming communities and farms. The sensors of each station measure temperature and relative humidity of air, pressure, wind speed and direction, snow depth, solid and liquid precipitation, and allow to measure also soil temperature.
It is an honor for our company to be part of this project. This project has become an important stage in the expansion of the presence of SIAP+MICROS’s meteorological and hydrological stations in the CIS countries.
