5700A Elite Weather Meter w/Applied Ballistics - Blaze Orange

Get the world's most complete ballistics calculator - a rugged Kestrel
Weather Meter with the "science of accuracy" built in! The Kestrel Elite
Weather Meter provides the full capabilities of the Applied Ballistics Elite
ballistics solver along with accurate measurement of wind and air density to
deliver elevation and windage solutions for unprecedented accuracy on
extended long range shots. Utilizing the full power of the Applied
Ballistics solver the Kestrel Elite is intended for shooters who want to
reach deep into the transonic and subsonic range.

Features:
  • Employs the Applied Ballistics bullet library of custom drag models,
    an exact measurement of your bullet's drag profile plus corrections for
    Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift, Coriolis, and Drop Scale Factoring to achieve
    accurate extended long-range shots
  • Expanded Features include a customizable Range Card, and an expanded
    Ballistics Data Table as well as storage for up to 16 gun and bullet
    profiles and 5 saved targets
  • Weather mode offers the full environmental measuremeants, storage and
    charting capabilities of the Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter, including wind
    speed, direction, crosswind, temperature, humidity, pressure and altitude
  • Large, hi-res, hi-contrast, graphic display is perfectly readable in the
    brightest sunlight. Includes both bright white and night-vision -preserving
    red backlight
  • Choice of solution units (Mils, true MOA, Shooter's MOA, or clicks) -
    works with any gun or targeting scope
  • Rugged (drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standards), waterproof (sealed to
    IP67 standards) and floats


The Kestrel Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics takes the guesswork
out of long-range shooting, even out to the transonic and subsonic flight
range of your bullet.

This next-generation integrated weather meter and ballistics solver provides
the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original
Kestrel 4500 with Applied Ballistics but adds many new features and options.
If you're familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first thing you'll notice is
the larger, higher-resolution and contrast display and improved font
readability. The Kestrel 5 series also includes a built-in dual color
backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation.

Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel Elite is drop-proof, dust-proof,
waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage - so it
can accompany you to the range, hunt, match, deployment or engagement for
years to come. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take
your Kestrel meter with you.

In addition to the ballistics solver capabilities, the Kestrel Elite is a
comprehensive weather meter for measurement and logging of primary
environmental conditions: wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity,
heat index, pressure and altitude. Paired with the Vane Mount, the Kestrel
Elite becomes a compact, easily-deployable weather station. Your data log
can be transferred to a mobile device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless
communication option and Kestrel LiNK app, or to a PC/MAC with either the
wireless USB Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable
(available separately).


Sleek, rugged tripod vane mount
Small, secure, robust vane mount turns any Kestrel 5 Series meter into a
portable weather station that remains oriented into the wind. (Included in
some models where noted, otherwise sold as optional accessory.)

Large, high contrast screen
Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with
more visible information on the screen at all times. This high-resolution
display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get more information from
customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye
strain or fatigue.

Dual color backlight
Toggle backlight color between standard white and night-vision-preserving
red (NV). The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to
help users sustain natural night vision and reduced brightness to avoid
detection during night maneuvers.

Secure battery door
Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.

Scratch and breakage-resistant window
Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from
damage.

Corrosion-resistant battery compartment
Battery is isolated from electronics, reducing damage in the event of a
battery leak. (Note - Lithium AA batteries strongly recommended to avoid
battery leakage altogether.)

Intuitive user-interface
Icon-based navigation, intuitive keypad, and multiple languages make the
Kestrel a breeze to use.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
