Rotating Vane Mount & Tactical Carry Case for 5000 Series - Tan Case

Turn your Kestrel 5 Series meter into a complete weather station with this lightweight, portable vane mount accessory. Includes a MOLLE/PALS compatible, Berry-compliant, tactical carry case.

This precision engineered accessory securely mounts any Kestrel 5 Series meter to any tripod or other ,-20 fitted bracket. Once mounted, the Kestrel 5 Series becomes a full-featured weather station with a large wind vane and precision pivot that keeps the Kestrel oriented into the wind for continuous measurement and logging of wind speed, wind direction, and all other key weather parameters. The Kestrel 5 Series Vane Mount offers many improvements over the Kestrel 4 Series Vane Mount including a sturdier one-piece boom, easier assembly, more secure retention of the Kestrel meter, and the convenience of being able to also use the Kestrel mounting clip as a fixed ,-20 compatible bracket, allowing use of an extension pole for taking wind or air flow readings.

For maximum functionality, choose a Kestrel with LiNK wireless data communication to accompany your Vane Mount. The Kestrel LiNK app displays the Kestrel's real-time readings on a vivid, customizable dashboard, providing a remote weather station display that functions up to 300' away (line of sight).

Your Kestrel 5 series meter can be conveniently stored and carried inside the Vane Mount tactical carry case, making it the world's most portable weather station. The ENTIRE Kestrel + Vane Mount kit weighs just 11 ounces / 315 grams and measures just 2.2 x 3.2 x 9 inches / 5.6 x 8.1 x 22.8 cm. The carry case is made of 500-denier Cordurar nylon and embedded Kevlarr fabric, which is tear-resistant and lightweight, and the dense and heavy padding protects the contents in transit.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Nature's Water Quality Detectives Assisting Scientists

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.

Citizen Scientists Helping Protect Water Quality and Measure Impact of Climate Change

Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .

Marine Food Webs At Risk Thanks to Climate Change

Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.
