Details

The HyQuest TB3 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge incorporates a syphon mechanism to deliver high levels of accuracy across a wide range of rainfall intensities. This rain gauge has 5 tipping bucket capacity options: 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.5mm, 1.0mm and 0.01 in. The TB3 also offers the choice of bucket materials: a synthetic ceramic coated brass tipping bucket or an injection molded ABS chrome plated tipping bucket, both of which are balanced to +/-0.05 gms.

Each unit consists of a collector funnel with leaf filter, an integrated syphon control mechanism, an outer enclosure with quick release fasteners, and base which houses the tipping bucket mechanism. The rain gauge also includes dual output reed switches with varistor protection that senses the pulse from each tip and logs it in an internal or external data logger. The dual reed switch can also transmit the tipping bucket pulse from the rain gauge to a telemetry system. 

What's Included:
  • (1) TB3 rain gauge
  • (1) Sensor cable, 5m

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.
