  1. 3D-PAWS storm surge sensor installed in the Dominican Republic

    Project to bring affordable 3D-printed stream, snow, and storm surge sensors to remote communities

    A project at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), called 3D-PAWS (3D-Printed Automatic Weather Station), is adding a new set of remote-sensing capabilities that will measure streamflow, storm surges, and snowfall depth to its suite of successful 3D-printed weather stations. This initiative will bring low-cost remote sensing instruments to the world’s “unseen” areas.
