DROP D3FW Fire Weather Monitor - Orange

Track weather conditions and record trends at a burn site or from the minute you get on a fire, then export data to get crucial information where it needs to go.

When managing a burn site, knowing environmental conditions are within prescription is important for compliance and to ensure a fire doesn't get out of control. Gathering sufficient weather data from site visits to make a decision on when to burn can be challenging. In addition to the full wind and weather readings from a Kestrel weather meter, the new Kestrel DROP data loggers can be left on site recording a history of conditions and trends which can then be viewed on a mobile device and shared via email.

Although on the silver screen there was a very satisfying Hollywood resolution to the problem, there has not yet been such a happy ending in real life. The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

BOB and MARI Will Monitor Water Chemistry in the San Francisco Bay

Scientists have had nagging questions about how ocean acidification might be affecting the waters of the San Francisco Bay. But if you can't trust BOB and MARI with your research questions, who can you trust? That's BOB, the Bay Ocean Buoy and MARI, BOB's companion mooring for Marine Acidification Research Inquiry, of course. BOB and MARI are a bright yellow, five-foot tall buoy and its companion mooring, respectively. They are anchored near the Estuary and Ocean Science (EOS) Center of San Francisco State University (SFSU). SFSU researchers are collaborating with scientists from the University of California, Davis and other funders and partner organizations on the first long-term project to monitor carbon dioxide and ocean acidity in the San Francisco Bay.
