5G networks will negatively affect metrological forecasts (3 photos)

5G-сети отрицательно повлияют на метрологические прогнозы (3 фото) The introduction of technologies using 5G networks can reduce the accuracy of weather forecasts by 30%, according to the American National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Forecasting accuracy may decline to 1980 levels. Accurate weather forecasting is especially relevant for residents of US coastal areas suffering from periodic hurricanes. Residents of these regions will be notified 2-3 days later of an approaching natural disaster, which means people and organizations may not have time to conduct preparatory activities in time. 5G-сети отрицательно повлияют на метрологические прогнозы (3 фото) Currently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) offers operators of 5G networks a frequency range of 24 GHz. The satellites of the metrological service, meanwhile, use the ability to generate weak electrical signals at a frequency of 23.8 GHz to monitor atmospheric water vapor. Proximity to this frequency of operating frequencies of 5G networks will reduce the ability of weather satellites to form an accurate weather forecast. 5G-сети отрицательно повлияют на метрологические прогнозы (3 фото) 5G network operators are encouraged to use less powerful base station signal sources, which will reduce interference. However, the problems of meteorologists do not end there. In the future, it is planned to sell frequencies for telecom operators, which can reduce the probability of precipitation forecasting (36–37 GHz), temperature tracking accuracy (50.2–50.4 GHz) and cloud detection (80–90 GHz). consultation. The final decision on the allocation of frequency ranges for 5G networks will be made this fall.
