Details

The NexSens CB-450 Data Buoy is designed for deployment in lakes, rivers, coastal waters, harbors, estuaries and other freshwater or marine environments. The floating platform supports both topside and subsurface environmental monitoring sensors including weather stations, wave sensors, thermistor strings, multi-parameter sondes, Doppler current profilers and other monitoring instruments.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A topside 20” tall stainless steel tower includes three 10-watt 12VDC unbreakable solar panels, and a center 10” ID x 19.5” tall instrument well accommodates batteries, data loggers, sensors, and more. Three 4” pass-through holes with female NPT bottom threads allow for quick connection of instrument deployment pipes and custom sensor mounts. The stainless steel frame supports both single point and multi-point moorings.

The CB-450 Data Buoy is optimized for use with NexSens data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include Wi-Fi, spread spectrum radio, cellular and Iridium satellite. Compatible digital and analog sensor interfaces include RS-232, RS-485, SDI-12, VDC, mA, and pulse count. The top of the instrument well includes 8 pass-through ports for power and sensor interface. Each port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.

Lake Data Buoy Tackles Understudied Champlain

Since the 1990s, manual sampling trips on Lake Champlain have gathered data on its dynamics every few weeks. But the measurements they’ve gleaned are sparse when you consider faster-paced changes that the lake could see in a future of predicted climate upheaval. To help fill that gap and meet a host of other needs, scientists at the State University of New York (SUNY) -- Plattsburgh have deployed a new lake data buoy on the water body. It is only the second such monitoring platform launched in Lake Champlain, after another that logs in Missisquoi Bay. The new cellular data buoy, sitting not far from Valcour Island, is providing previously unavailable data on the lake in real time.

Suttle Lake Data Buoy Answers Salmon Questions

Oregon’s Suttle Lake is home to populations of kokanee salmon, best described as the landlocked version of sockeye salmon. In 2003, kokanee salmon there were anywhere from 12 to 18 inches long. Nowadays, their average size is around a mere nine inches according to the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). Clearly something is going on with kokanee salmon in Suttle Lake. But there has also been a recent resurgence of sockeye using the lake as well, thanks to dam removal projects and stream modifications by USFS fisheries biologists that have helped reduce difficulty for fish passage. To help improve understanding of both types of salmon that live in Suttle Lake, officials at the High Lakes Aquatic Alliance Foundation (HLAAF) have launched a water quality monitoring buoy in the water body.

Lake Nipissing Algae Blooms: Mixing May Have Role

Sitting between the Ottawa River and Georgian Bay, Lake Nipissing is the third largest lake in Ontario. It’s packed full of islands and has shallow waters that make for numerous sandbars along a winding shoreline. The lake is a popular tourist draw, especially around Callander Bay, where boaters and swimmers come in the summer and anglers fish year-round. Despite that, the nutrients that support algae growth in the bay have been largely unstudied. Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan and Nipissing University are trying to relieve that lack of knowledge with the help of two data buoys. One is deployed in the center of Callander Bay while the other is sitting between the Manitou Islands and the City of North Bay.
