TheAIT1500 incorporates a high sensitivity GPS antenna within its compact case whichsaves on antenna clutter and makes for a speedy installation. It's ideal for fitting onsmaller vessels and tenders. It uses a NMEA0183 interface for simple connectionto the vast majority of AIS compatible chart plotters and also has a separate 4800baud GPS data output for the DSC VHF if required. It consumes less that 2W powerand can operate on 12/24V systems. It also features a silence capability so the AIStransmissions can be muted while continuing to receive AIS traffic.

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.
