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.

For BE Surveys, Custom Bathymetry Boats Capture What’s Beneath The Surface

Bathymetric surveys are a popular way to capture the underwater topography of lakes, rivers and other natural water bodies. But sometimes these topography measurements are important for manmade reservoirs, like holding or tailing ponds. These bodies can contain caustic materials, which makes manual bathymetric surveying impossible. Luckily, there are other ways to get the job done. These typically involve using a remotely operated vehicle of some sort to carry sensors around a water body to gather the data needed. For workers at BE Survey Group, an Australian company, they like to use what are called bathymetric survey boats. Surveying pros there have built several custom boats that are used routinely around the country, and internationally as well.

Selwyn Mountain Range’s Ice Loss Three Times Global Average

Canadian scientists studying in the Selwyn Mountain range are encountering an intense retreat of glaciers, according to Yale Environment 360 . The ice losses they’re seeing are some of the most extreme ever recorded there. Results of the work may be useful in determining what the future holds for the western portion of the Arctic reaching into North America. From 1982 to 2008, scientists studying in the region charted a 30 percent decrease in icefields in the so-called “Cirque of the Unclimbables” part of the mountain range. But using more modern measurement methods available today, incorporating hydrological data and readings from onsite weather stations, they have found that the ice losses have accelerated since then.

Australian Scientists Developing New Robotic Autonomous Sampler

Scientists at Queensland University have developed a new advanced way to study the world’s waterways, according to Mashable . They have put together what they’re calling Inference robotic boat systems that they say can autonomously sample on waterways for months at a time. The large and futuristic floating platforms are made of fiberglass and feature a coat of bright yellow paint. Solar panels are mounted near the top for power, along with solar marine lights to warn boaters and swimmers where they might be located on the water. As for the sensors the boats can employ, scientists are working to make the platform compatible with most any sort, including water samplers, cameras or gas analyzers.
