Details

The Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station wirelessly transmits data up to 1000 feet. The station measures indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall. Tested to survive cyclic corrosion in extreme weather environments, the electronics are sealed inside the integrated sensor suite to provide protection against harsh weather or flying objects. The station updates every 2.5 seconds, and records wind speeds as low as 2 miles per hour, and as high as 150 miles per hour.

 

The weather station uses frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio for reliable data transmission, displayed on an easy to read LCD screen. A glow-in-the-dark keypad is used for night viewing and the domed buttons for a better feel. 50 on-screen graphs are used to compare current and past weather conditions. 22 alarms can be set to warn of dangers such as high winds or possible flooding. The radio is compatible with the Vantage Pro2, and the optional WeatherLink software can be used for extensive weather analysis and data storage. The software is compatible on PC's, Mac's, and internet versions.

 

Applications include home weather watching and gardening, monitoring weather at schools and universities, monitoring extreme weather conditions in marinas and vacation homes, and for use in fire fighting and emergency response.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.
