Details

The OTT Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge is an all-weather precipitation gauge that uses superior weight-based technology to measure rainfall, snow or hail. Like the original, the new Pluvio2 measures both the amount and intensity of liquid, solid, and mixed precipitation. The instrument works according to the balance principle, taking into account external factors such as temperature and wind that could distort the results. Liquid or solid precipitation is measured immediately with no time delay for melting solid precipitation.

The Pluvio2 also offers additional features and benefits including real-time intensity, non real-time accumulation with a constant 5-minute delay, larger capacity option, larger collection area option, and multiple communication interfaces. The Model 200 features a collection capacity of 1500mm and a 200 cm orifice. The Model 400 offers a collection capacity of 750mm and a 400cm orifice. Electronics are hermetically sealed against damaging environmental influences. The carrier, bucket, and protective housing all feature a robust construction with high-quality materials.

The Pluvio2 includes built-in RS-485 and SDI-12 outputs for interfacing with NexSens iSIC and SDL data loggers. Sensor cable can be factory-connectorized with NexSens underwater connectors for integration to an SDL submersible data logger sensor port. Data collection options include direct-connect, landline phone, cellular, radio, Ethernet, WI-FI, and satellite telemetry. NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing both locally (direct-connect) and remotely (through telemetry) to a NexSens data logger or network of data loggers.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is the difference between the 200 and the 400?
The Pluvio2 200 has a collecting area of 200cm^2 and a recording capacity of 1,500 mm precipitation. The Pluvio2 400 has a larger collecting area of 400cm^2 and a smaller recording capacity of 750 mm precipitation.
Do the Pluvio2 200 and the heated Pluvio2 200 have the same reading capacity?
Yes, both models have the same features. The only difference is the addition of the integrated orifice rim heating in the second model.
Can I use my Pluvio2 400 in negative temperatures?
Yes but it is recommended that you add anti-freeze to the collecting duct, This solution enables the solid precipitation to melt in the collecting bucket and prevents severe deformation of the bucket floor if the collected precipitation freezes completely. See the manual (available under the Documents tab) for anti-freeze proportions.

Healthy, Diverse Soil Invertebrate Communities Mitigate Impacts Of Climate Change

You don’t have to look far to find one of the Earth’s biggest contributors of atmospheric carbon — just scoop up a handful of dirt. Microbes living in the soil release 10 times more carbon into the atmosphere than humans worldwide. This doesn’t let humans off the hook, however, as anthropogenic activity can drastically impact the rate of this emission. New research from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies reveals that healthy and diverse soil communities can mitigate the feedback effect that occurs between climate change and soil respiration. A paper detailing the findings was published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences .

Satellites Track California's Dwindling Groundwater

According to an article in Wired , satellite monitoring has recently been used to show California’s groundwater levels by analyzing the sinking of California land, which is directly related to groundwater depletion. Data on California’s groundwater are being analyzed by NASA researchers, who are creating maps of California land sinkage. The satellite data are being gathered using a technique called interferometric synthetic aperture radar, which measures changes in ground deformation. Although the technique was used in the past to monitor terrain changes due to earthquakes and volcanoes, using InSAR to monitor groundwater depletion is relatively new. Other techniques to monitor groundwater depletion, while useful, come with drawbacks not inherent in satellite monitoring.

Unknown Climate Change Impacts Remain For U.S. Midwest Growing Season

Many climate change models incorporate surface air temperature and precipitation data, but inclusion of soil moisture is not typical, even though soil moisture is a key indicator of the water cycle. In an attempt to correct this exclusion, researchers at Dartmouth College used climate change models including soil moisture to predict whether the U.S. Midwest will become wetter or drier in the summer growing season due to climate change. Their results appear to be inconclusive, according to a press release from Dartmouth College . Although their models unanimously predicted rises in Midwest summer temperatures, results relating to drier or wetter summers varied depending on which global climate model was used to inform the regional climate model.
