3500FW Fire Weather Meter - Orange

Measure weather conditions quickly and easily with the trusted tool of firefighters, now with wetbulb and baro/alt measurements included.

When fighting wild fires, protecting lives, houses, and property while ensuring safety for everyone involved demands accurate fire behavior predictions based upon good weather observations. Kestrel weather meters have been relied upon by fire fighters for decades to provide fast, accurate measurement of wind speed, temperature and humidity. The Kestrel 3500 Fire Weather Meter has been updated specifically for fire fighting, adding barometric pressure, altitude and wet bulb readings and an easy-to-read Probability of Ignition (PIG) and Fine Dead Fuel Moisture (FDFM) reference card - everything required for a complete weather observation. This one rugged, handheld instrument easily replaces all of the items included in your Belt Weather Kit, providing consistently accurate measurements without prepping a sling psychrometer or risking the possibility of human error.

IP67 waterproof and Mil-SPEC-810G drop tested, Kestrels are built for the abuse that work on a fire line can dish out. The Kestrel 3500 Fire Weather Meter includes a hard, rubberized slip-on cover that protects the display and impeller, even when tossed in your pack. Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters are designed & manufactured in the U.S.A and are backed by our 5-year warranty. Each Kestrel 3500 is factory calibrated and comes with a certificate of conformity and may be factory or field recalibrated.

Lake Superior Weather Buoy Provides Valuable New Data

A new weather buoy in a remote part of Lake Superior is providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES) and the University of Colorado-Boulder recently deployed the buoy on the lake one mile north of Stannard Rock Lighthouse. SWP gained ownership of the lighthouse in 2015. Because the light was built on a large reef in a remote part of the lake, it is one of the most popular trout fishing and charter boat destinations on the Great Lakes. It has also been the location of a NOAA weather station since 1984 and a Great Lakes Evaporation Network monitoring site since 2008.

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.

Riverkeeper Initiative Tackles Water Monitoring, Activism and Education

Celebrating its 25th year, Coosa River Basin Initiative is forming a new water monitoring partnership with the Berry College Environmental Science program. Coosa River Basin Initiative, also known as CRBI , is a grassroots environmental protection organization that works with volunteers to protect and preserve the Coosa River in Rome, Georgia and the surrounding cities.
