The climate chambers vary in their sizes and characteristics, such as the temperature and the relative humidity interval. Depending on the size, the chambers can host machinery, equipment, people, plants, and other organisms, even for long periods of time.
The various climatic parameters are reproducible simultaneously and can be combined with a certain altitude (up to 9,000 meters or 29,527 ft). These parameters include temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, concentration of oxygen, pressure, solar radiation, precipitations (rainfall and snowfall) and lighting (day and night). By leveraging on the vast variety of parameters, conditions of environmental stress can be recreated in order to study the response of human beings and nature, or the performance of materials and products.
