"Terra Byke is an innovation planned for the UK's cycle network using installed and maintained sensor units. Terra Byke will provide rural atmospheric data visualisation for both scientific research communities and the public for monitoring of global change in our environment"
... if you are interested, please get in touch
Our ground-based network of moving sensors will be available to UK cycle outlets during the coming years. The housing will integrate GIS, satellite navigation positioning and near-ground earth observation (EO) sensors to detect various aspects of the rural environment. These will stream a continuous / seasonal source of data to space validation teams and will also be made available for researchers and e-learning organisations.
We expect that the service will be free for qualifying bicycle hire networks, based on the density of cycle networks, range of terrain and cycle miles per bike per year. There will be opportunities to subscribe to e-learning resources and for additional services for local visitor centres.
Data gathered by cyclist network will include atmospheric composition and geophysical parameters, which will be used for ...

Earth day 2013 – 10th Anniversary of Climate Calculator
Yes. That’s right. Weather Logistics uses a dusty climate change calculator developed in its current form during spring 2003. But dusty need not mean redundant, as the old adage states: simple and ingenious often go hand-in-hand. During the year 2000 a simple demonstration of the climate calculator was produced using my Sharp EL-9400 calculator to [...]
