  Rain can also become one of the natural contingencies when it occurs as very heavy downpours. A weather radar or radar rain gauge is the tool that measures rainfall using radar. The approximate value of radar is the electric power from the rain drops in a certain volume of air. Drought affects a large part of the world each year. Remote sensing is one of the effective tools that sense disasters in the drought-affected areas. Floods can be sensed through satellite sensors which estimate the snow cover, water elevation, rain rate, soil moisture, solar radiation, surface albedo, land cover, flood monitoring and surface temperature over a vast area. Global Information System (GIS) GIS is a tool that is used […]

        Here is real simple way to install real solar lighting and avoid the cost and equipment of panels. I installed some in the Solar Bathhouse this weekend and it really made a difference.           Using only a empty coke bottle, all I did was wash it out and filled it with water. I added a cap full of bleach to keep the growth down and the water clear. I drilled a three inch hole in the roof, installed the filled bottle and siliconed the heck out of it. I also had to support the bottle on the underside for about 6 hours until the silicone dried. There you have it. One of […]
