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

An Unassuming Aquatic Weed Could Be the Answer to Contaminant Removal

The most elegant solutions to even the most knotty problems are often those devised by nature. An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Upper Big Sioux River Watershed Project (UBS) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) have been developing one of nature's solutions into a workable remover of contaminants such as nitrates, nitrites, phosphorus, and even heavy metals from slow-moving waters such as lakes and ponds: a small, unassuming aquatic plant called duckweed. Roger Foote, project coordinator of UBS, describes how the team decided to explore what duckweed might be capable of after his efforts to use algae to remove phosphorus from water were thwarted unexpectedly.

White River Monitoring Backs Work to Boost River’s Civic Profile

The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.

Baking in the Sun: How Groundwater Recharge is Likely to Change as the Climate Does

Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.
