Details

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.

How Mussels Cope with Ocean Acidification Sheds Light on Effects of Climate Change

New research reveals that accelerating ocean acidification may be forcing the California mussel to adapt, transforming its fundamental shell structure. Although the mineralogical makeup of this mussel's shell has remained stable for millennia, comprised of neatly ordered, geometrically regular vertical rows of long, cylindrical crystals of calcite, recent samples exhibit structural changes that appear to be the result of escalating ocean acidification. New structures in record time Study leader and Florida State University Assistant Professor of Biological Science Sophie McCoy began the research after making a strange observation. “Mussels are a widely studied component of coastal marine communities, so they have always been an organism of interest,” comments Dr.

Weeks Bay NERR offers glimpse into ancient estuaries along the northern Gulf of Mexico

Mike Shelton, natural resources planner for Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), has spent 17 years at the Reserve. The Reserve was founded in 1986 and is located in the Alabama and Florida coastal region. “It’s a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Places like this are why we live on the coast,” he enthuses. “There’s also a lot of history here. It’s one of the first areas settled by the Europeans after they arrived in America. The city of Pensacola was the second city built in the U.S.,” adds Scott Phipps, research coordinator for Weeks Bay NERR. Weeks Bay NERR monitoring follows the same System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) as the other 28 NERRs, which includes deploying data-gathering sondes throughout the Bay.
