Earth Networks gathers and analyzes environmental observations from around the world to help promote a better understanding of the planet and its atmosphere. Earth Networks (formerly AWS Convergence Technologies/WeatherBug) is expanding beyond its core infrastructure as a global weather and lightning observation network to offer more extensive environmental monitoring capabilities.
Earth Networks severe weather alerting infrastructure utilizes live observations and severe weather detection capabilities to warn when approaching severe weather becomes a threat to your location. Online and mobile customers receive notifications when the National Weather Service issues alerts. In addition to these alerts, Earth Networks provides advance notification of severe storm activity through proprietary alerts, such as the Earth Networks Dangerous Thunderstorm Alert. These alerts indicate the increased threat of severe weather moving into an identified area, and they are issued when the lightning detection rate exceeds high levels - a precursor to severe weather such as lightning strikes, heavy rain rates, hail, high winds and even tornadic activity.
Earth Networks' professional-grade weather stations track 27 different variables, including: outdoor temperature, daily high and low, wind chill/heat index, Barometric pressure, daily rain, wind speed and direction, dew point and rain rates. Additionally, their greenhouse gas network is designed to meet the ongoing, careful scrutiny of the scientific community and must adhere to set standards for reporting, measurement and verification.
As a natural extension of services based on known weather models, historical information and current conditions, Earth Networks offers a variety of forecasting and predictive analysis products and services that serve as invaluable tools for severe weather detection and visualization. Earth Networks is the leader in the detection of deadly cloud-to-ground lightning and, through the Earth Networks Total Lightning Network (ENTLN), the first company to offer a comprehensive, national lightning solution that includes in-cloud lightning detection. By leveraging the existing infrastructure of the Earth Networks weather network, many industry partnerships, and a new modular sensor design, ENTLN commands the dense sensor deployment needed to achieve high efficiency capture of total lightning activity.
Earth Networks is working with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to ensure that standards of precision and impartiality are applied to its environmental network.
