Details

The WindLog is a compact, inexpensive wind data logger for autonomous collection of wind speed and direction data. Data can be downloaded from the WindLog using a 15-foot USB cable and the no-cost Windows-based WindLogger software (WindSoft), which uses a SQLite database to track and record wind information.

The logging interval can be set from once a minute to once an hour. The USB cable can be left connected to the WindLog, allowing real-time viewing of the wind data on a computer. By combining both logged and real-time data, WindLog can be used both online and offline. WindSoft can generate statistics, graphs and reports. It can also export CSV files for use with Microsoft Excel or any other application that supports CSV files.

Battery life for the logger will depend upon the environment and logging rates. Typical battery life is 6-9 months. When connected to a computer the WindLog will use the USB port power to run. This further extends the life of the batteries.

The Mini-Aervane wind sensor is equipped with low friction race bearings. This reduces the threshold to approximately one mile per hour. The wind direction sensor has a 16-point resolution. Logged direction readings are averaged readings.

A support mast is included with the WindLog. This mast can be used with the Rainwise Mono Mount or tripod. The mast may also be attached to a support structure using U-Bolts or lag screws.

RainWise Weather Stations, Telemetry And Accessories

RainWise is one of the oldest players in the weather monitoring market, having been around since 1974. For reference, that’s only 4 years younger than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Through the years this Maine-based company has logged several advancements in the field starting with RainWise’s very first product, the tipping bucket rain gauge, which is now an industry standard. Since then they have introduced the first consumer digital weather station and the first wireless consumer weather station among other pioneering innovations. With more than 40 years of experience, the products that RainWise produces today are just as inspired.

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.
