Monitoring country-wide atmospheric water vapor in Uganda

The first TWIGA cost-effective GNSS stations were successfully deployed in Uganda in November 2019 by GReD, PoliMi, and TU Delft. Since then, they have collected raw GNSS data to monitor the amount of atmospheric water vapor, for meteorological applications. The stations were deployed nearby Kampala, forming a dense mesh capable of detecting spatial variations of […]

Connecting TWIGA to the GEOSS initiative

Climate and weather, with a high degree of spatial and temporal variability, can adversely affect crop yields, cattle production, and the availability of freshwater. The production of food is at the forefront of climate change and population growth impacts as the ecosystems on which it relies are increasingly degraded and the availability of suitable land […]
