Specialists of the Institute of Radar Meteorology conducted primary measurements of the temperature profile of the road «Scandinavia». A set of works will be carried out on the implementation of thermal mapping of the route in different seasons in the framework of the project Green InterTraffic. Measurements will be conducted every season until the end of 2019.
«Thermal mapping is the definition of spatial variations in the road surface temperature and their representation as a database. The obtained data are needed information to improve weather forecasts along the road, which is one of the factors of increase of ecological and transport safety of the road", - said project Meteo researcher Mark Vinogradov.02 September 2019
