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).

An Unassuming Aquatic Weed Could Be the Answer to Contaminant Removal

The most elegant solutions to even the most knotty problems are often those devised by nature. An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Upper Big Sioux River Watershed Project (UBS) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) have been developing one of nature's solutions into a workable remover of contaminants such as nitrates, nitrites, phosphorus, and even heavy metals from slow-moving waters such as lakes and ponds: a small, unassuming aquatic plant called duckweed. Roger Foote, project coordinator of UBS, describes how the team decided to explore what duckweed might be capable of after his efforts to use algae to remove phosphorus from water were thwarted unexpectedly.

White River Monitoring Backs Work to Boost River’s Civic Profile

The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.

Baking in the Sun: How Groundwater Recharge is Likely to Change as the Climate Does

Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.
