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 and
offers Link IOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support.
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.

With the Kestrel Elite/Link you get the power of the free Kestrel Link
Ballastics app. Build and manage your gun/bullet profiles and download them
to your Kestrel Elite before you set out. Choose from the extensive Litz
library of custom bullet drag models for the most precise trans-sonic and
sub-sonic range solutions available anywhere. At the range or match, secure
your Kestrel Elite to a tripod using the optional Kestrel Vane Mount and use
the app to quickly adjust the target range and view the shooting solution
and wind rose without leaving your shooting position. The LiNK Ballistics
app even lets you set up multiple targets for single-screen viewing - just
about an unfair advantage! It's like having a meteorologist and ballistician
standing next to you while you shoot.

Link enabled units can also be wirelessly paired with LiNK compatible laser
range finders, such as the Bushnell Elite 1 Mile CONX, to seamlessly
integrate target data into the ballistic solution for unparalleled speed and

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).

First Environmental Monitoring System For Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.

Parasite Behind Yellowstone River Fish Kill Found In Other Rivers

A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.

ESPniagara Tracks Algal Toxins In Lake Erie, Protects Drinking Water

It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.
