We will try to respond quickly
Leakage Monitoring Tool
Industrial facilities are not entirely secured from the leakages of harmful volatile compounds. In case of emergency leakage government needs to respond fast and precise.
What you get?
Get notified when sensors detect anomalous levels of the concentration of harmful chemical substances, e.g. CH4, SO2 or PM. Use data from sensors and Aerostate models to locate the leak in real time or retrospectively. Visualize the evolution of the pollution plume and the affected area.
Why is it important?
Fukushima-1, March 2011
The Aliso Canyon, October 2015
On the morning of March 11, 2011 the most powerful earthquake in the history of Japan with a magnitude of 9.0 points occurred, and caused a tsunami. Both of these factors have disabled the cooling system of the nuclear reactor and leaded to destruction of its core. A huge amount of radioactive pollutants were emitted into the atmosphere.
In October 2015, a large methane leak was discovered in the gas storage in Aliso Canyon. The initial effect of the release was to increased the estimated 5.3 Gt of methane in the Earth's atmosphere by about 0.002%, diminishing to half that in 6-8 years. As of January 7, 2016, 2,824 households or about 11,296 people had been temporarily relocated, while more than 6,500 families have filed for help.
