Details

The NexSens EXO Sonde Mooring Cages provide a secure and convenient means of deploying a YSI EXO multi-parameter water quality sonde. The cage features a 304 stainless steel construction with top and bottom 3/4" eyenuts. The convenient eyenut connection allows the cage to be deployed in-line on an open water buoy mooring or mounted horizontally on a riverbed.

Two integrated PVC mooring clamps are designed specifically for the diameter of a YSI EXO1 or EXO2 sonde. Each clamp features a hinged pin design for quick clamping and release. The clamps are positioned at the optimal clamp areas of an EXO sonde so as not to deform the instrument.

An optional mounting crossarm is available for adding photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) sensors. The crossarm allows for both upwelling and downwelling sensors with optional anti-fouling wipers. For saltwater applications, sacrificial zinc shaft anodes are available to attach to the cage and mitigate corrosion during long-term deployments.

Notable Specifications:
  • Dimensions: 42" long, 12" diameter
  • Weight: 16 lbs.
  • Material: 304 SS frame, 316 SS eyenuts, PVC clamps
  • Mooring Attachments: (2) 3/4” eyenuts

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
