What technology is being used to detect microbursts?
The main technology that is being used to detect microbursts is Doppler radar. Another one called LIDAR is also growing in popularity.

Hurricanes are usually studied and detected by satellites.
Uhm, electric tech or mechanical tech? Because if both then almost everywhere and anyhow. If just electric then you'll find more as you move up richer countries, still an …average home in Australia pretty much everything can have electric additions to it.

Radar is essential to detecting tornadoes. The primary type ofradar used is called radial velocity. The radar measures thedirection of the wind within about 200-300 miles of t…he radar site,i.e., whether the wind is moving away from or towards the radarsite, as well as its velocity. Since tornadoes are essentiallyviolently rotating columns of air, meteorologists look for areaswhere air is moving away from the radar which are located rightnext to winds moving toward the radar. This is the basis of thetechnique, but of course it gets more complicated. More recently,some radar has been upgraded with a capability called dualpolarization. This allows the radar to differntiate between rain,hail, and debris from a tornado. If this debris is detected, itlikely means that a tornado is causing or has recently causedsignificant damage. Additionally, scientists rely on trained spotters, storm chasers,and even law enforcement as "eyes" on the ground. This typicallytakes the form of a spotter network equipped with amateur radio.Spotters can be mobile or fixed. This is very important, becauseradar is rarely able to provide enough evidence to confirm atornado on the ground. Checkout skywarn for more information.

ya tech. can be used for crimes.... mobiles which are the greatest advantage of tech. also has disadvantage like you have heard of many sounds,making mms
Some for ex sample weapons cost thousands of lives, But they also save thousands of lives. Other useful tools like a can opener helps open cans.
Yes. Microbursts are a common cause of damaging wind duringthunderstorms, so you will often hear them mentioned in stormsurveys.
Oceanic ridges were first discovered during world war II during submarine reconnaissance missions. There is much data that shows that the sea-floor gradually spreads away from… these ridges. 1) sea-floor sediments: Based on the current rate of sedimentation scientists can calculate the depth of an oceanic layer of sediments that would accumulate over billions of years if the sea floor remained motionless over time. On the other hand, this depth would be much less if the sea floor has been continually recycled over the course of geologic history. Scientists have used exploratory drilling vessels to sample sediment depths at a variety of locations in the ocean basins. They have found that the sea floor must be a part of a dynamic system because the layer of oceanic sediments is not very deep at all. 2) Paleomagnetism: The earth has a magnetic field that reverses itself in a cyclic fashion over time. The North magnetized pole becomes the south magnetized pole and vise versa. As molten rock crystallizes iron containing minerals in the rock align themselves toward the north pole of earths magnetic field. Scientists sample such rocks and determine their age and magnetic direction. In this way we have documented the time intervals between magnetic field reversals and have developed a magnetic timescale. at divergent plate boundaries the magma solidifies regularly and every time a rock is formed the rock preserves the earths magnetic field at that time. Oceanographers have used magnetometers to determine that running parallel to spreading centers are strips of normally or reversely magnetized crust. Additionally, the pattern is stripped and symmetrical on either side of the spreading center. This indicates that as lava is solidified it preserves the magnetic field (normal or reversed) and pushes the plate forward to make way for the next layer of new crust. And this occurs until the earths magnetic field reverses again and then a new strip of crust is oppositely magnetized from the previous strip. 3) Geochronology: Scientists can date the age of oceanic crust by drilling past the layer of sediment on the sea floor and to the crust. The marine fossils that they find on the interface of the sediment layer and crust layer indicates the age of that crust. In this way it has been determined that the oceanic crust age increases with distance from spreading centers. This is a strong peace of evidence that the sea floor is spreading. 4) Satellites: very sensitive satellites can detect tiny motions on the surface of the earth. Scientists have used this sort of data to determine the rates that lithospheric plates are moving.
Microbursts often produce strong wind shear, a large difference inwind speed and direction over a short distance. This is notablebecause it poses a great risk to aircraft that… are taking off andlanding.
With "Smart Grid" technology, power companies are using the power grid to send/receive RF signals. These high or low frequencies co-exist with the usual 60hz being transmitted… across the nation. Eventually, with the installation of 'smart meters', they can read power consumption without coming out to the site, eliminating thousands of jobs, and some suggest even turn your power on/off from a remote station. This technology also allows them to locate outages faster and identify problem locations in power transmission. An under reported associated phenomenon is that of EMF (Electromagnetic frequency) radiation, where RF signals are leaking from the unshielded power lines causing some people to hear a constant low hum in their homes. (Google 'The Taos Hum', or "The Kokomo Hum' for more on this.) In some areas this technology is also being used to provide WiFi or Broadband over the power lines (BPL), since it is less costly than running miles of cable to reach remote areas already served by electric lines.

Computer technology is used the same way, either in trains or airplanes. Its function is to manage all electronic devices that allow trains, jetliners, airplanes, aircraft car…riers, to work properly, If something is going wrong, the computer sends a message do the commander, and a technician may go the right place in order to fix the deffective mechanism. In trains, a computer controls the speed, the engine that powers the train, the ilummination, and receive warnings from the central unit which manage all the trains.
