Product Description
With 32 times the memory of our Weather Envoy, Envoy8X receives and logs data simultaneously from up to eight transmitting stations, in any combination - even eight Integrated Sensor Suites or eight Leaf Wetness & Soil Moisture/Temperature Stations! That means you can get data from 32 soil moisture sensors on one Envoy8X! Includes robust software that allows for data from many sensors and multiple Envoy8Xs to produce very large databases in Microsoft Access®, MySQL®, or Microsoft SQL Server®. You select which sensors to log, and choose a logging interval from 10 seconds to 2 hours. Use archive intervals as small as 30 seconds. You can even add select third-party sensors that report readings in a 0-3 volt range. Data can be easily exported to a spreadsheet program such as Excel®, or to WeatherLink to take advantage of WeatherLink's graphing and reports.

Key features:

  • Collect and store weather data in your own database from up to 8 Davis stations or 32 soil moisture sensors
  • 32 times more data logging capacity than our regular Envoy
  • Export for use with WeatherLink
  • Compatible with a solar power kit (#6610) and System Shelter (#7724)
  • Use non-Davis sensors through the 'raw data' specification

Storage capacity depends upon the logging interval, but is so large that you can download a remote field installation when it?s most convenient. For example, an Envoy8X logging two Integrated Sensor Suites and two Soil Moisture/Leaf Wetness stations at a 15-minute update interval will store over 365 days worth of data.
Envoy8X has built-in temperature and humidity sensors, as well as a barometer. The software will report data from those sensors as 'inside' data, effectively giving you a ninth ?station.? You may connect an external temperature probe (6475 or 6477) to replace the Envoy8X's internal temperature probe. Receives data from all Vantage Pro2 radios and repeaters. Includes an AC-power adapter; may also be run using Solar Power Kit (7707), or on three AA batteries. Expected battery life is one to four months depending on the logging interval. Requires WeatherLink for Windows (USB or Serial).

System Requirements:

  • Windows® XP, Vista™ or 7 operating system
  • 32 MB memory (64 MB recommended)
  • VGA/SVGA monitor (800 x 600 or higher recommended)
  • MS Access run-time engine is included. MS Excel, MySQL and SQL Server are not included

Sensor Array Stretching Across the North Atlantic Reveals Drivers of Global Currents

Most of us are aware that the oceans of the world play a tremendously important role in both the regulation of the global climate and the uptake of atmospheric carbon. However, one might be forgiven for being less aware of the amazing complexity of the meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the world's oceans. Scientists around the world are still learning about these drivers of our global climate system. The AMOC, that portion of the MOC in the Atlantic, is critical to average climate worldwide. Characterized by fluctuations from north to south and back again, warmer waters move northward on the globe, allowing deeper, colder waters to circulate toward more central areas.

BRUVS Capturing Deep-Reef Fish Communities

Until recently, it's been difficult for scientists to monitor, inventory, and study deep water fishes. Yet these species are critical to understanding threats posed by climate change, fishing pressure, and pollution, among other factors impacting marine life. Now, teams are using newer technologies to access and document fish abundance and diversity among deeper reef settings. Tiffany Sih , a PhD candidate from James Cook University, has used Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) with lights to sample deeper habitats (54–260 m), in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Australia. Sih corresponded with EM about her recent work , the first study of its kind looking deeper than 100m, and what inspired her to take the deeper dive.

As Arctic Permafrost Thaws, Northernmost Lakes Brown

More than 250 million years ago, massive volcanic activity in the region of what is now Siberia caused “The Great Dying,†a colorful name for the Permian mass extinction that wiped out most of the life on Earth at the time. Once the volcanic activity finally calmed down after a respectable one million years, about 96 percent of life in the ocean and 80 percent of life on land was gone. About 500 gigatons of carbon were left behind in that region, and as the Earth cooled, that carbon was sealed in the Permafrost that covers much of Siberia today. Permafrost is simply ground that stays frozen at or below 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit) all of the time. It does not necessarily contain ice; as long as it remains frozen solid, even completely dry ground is permafrost.
