The Davis Vantage Vue 2nd Station Console/Receiver displays and records a station's weather data.
The Davis Vantage Vue 2nd Sation Console/Receiver includes an outdoor integrated sensor suite that transmits outside sensor data to a console via a low-power radio. The console displays all of the information coming from the ISS, and can also receive data from a Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station. The console also displays and records a stations' weather data, providing graphs and alarm functions, and interfaces to a computer using the optional WeatherLink software. It allows users to view multiple screens of weather data simultaneously.
Vantage Vue displays current outdoor and indoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction, dew point, and rainfall data points. It also shows weather forecast icons for moon phase, and sunrise/sunset time. The console updates outside temperature every 10 seconds and inside temperature every minute. Outside humidity is updated every 50 seconds and inside humidity every minute. The five-position trend arrow shows whether barometric pressure is rising, falling, or stable. Rain totals and rain rates are updated every 20 seconds for the last 25 hours, days, and months.
The Weather Center provides additional information for each weather variable, such as highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, and barometric value changes. It also displays astronomical data such as meteor showers. The glow-in-the-dark, domed buttons give access to weather information day or night. Users can view up to 50 graphs for the last 25 hours, days, or months for rain, temperature, rain, rain rate, wind, and barometric pressure. The data point on the graph shows the weather during the same time of the previous day to help compare and analyze the day-to-day weather trends. 22 user-selectable alarms offer warnings of dangers such as high winds, freezing temperatures, rain rates, and flood warnings. Windspeed is updated every 2.5 seconds, and displayed in miles per hour, meters per second, kilometers per hour, and knots. The console also provides the average and high wind speed at two-minute and ten-minute intervals.

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
