Details

The AMS Turf Probe is designed to collect a small 1/2" diameter soil sample from sod or grassed areas that can be up to 7" in depth.

The AMS One-Piece Turf Probe is made from nickel-plated carbon steel and has a built-in 10" comfortably gripped cross handle. The sturdy design of the turf probe resists bending and twisting. The wide slot in the turf probe body allows for easy removal of the soil sample as the tip cuts a soil core that is slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the turf probe itself. The top of the slot is closed to prevent turf, grass, or soil from being trapped in the upper section of the turf probe. A corrosion resistant 10" cross handle is permanently attached to the probe and fitted with comfortable grips.

USGS Scientists Identify Causes of High Concentrations of Radium in Aquifer Water

What exactly is happening far beneath our feet is typically a bit mysterious, requiring some special effort to study. Starting in the 1950s, reports of radium concentrations in excess of 5 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) in water from the Cambrian-Ordovician aquifer system started scientists thinking about the issue of radium in this massive aquifer which provides more than 630 million gallons of water each day to the public supply in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri. Now, USGS scientists have published new research results, available online here , revealing how much radium is in the aquifer, and shedding light on how it gets there.

Guardians of the Riverbank: Planting Trees to Protect Water Quality and Wildlife

In fall of 2017, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) along with their project partners improved more than 9,000 feet of riverbank by planting 5,690 native trees and shrubs to protect the Connecticut River and its tributaries. The trees now guard against erosion and pollution on seven farms in New Hampshire and Vermont, and expand the existing habitat for local wildlife. This kind of project is part of CRC's core work. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene roared up the East Coast of the United States, leaving a tell-tale path of destruction behind. Listed as the eighth-costliest hurricane in American history, the storm also hurt the watershed of the Connecticut River.

University of Toronto Doctoral Student Sees Environmental Monitoring Future in Internet of Things

Researchers face many difficulties. Assessing the ecological health of large geographic regions, especially those with a low population and few research facilities, is one of the many challenges scientists face. One such region is the Ottawa River in Canada, nearly 800 miles long with an overall drainage area of 55,000 square miles. Not only is it vast, but there are few human inhabitants and few research outposts. While gathering representative water samples in such a region is difficult enough, there is also the challenge of responding in a timely manner when problems arise.
