UNC's industry-standard water quality profiling platforms get upgrade

The University of North Carolina Institute Of Marine Sciences has a history with profiling platforms. UNC engineers and scientists have been building the research floaters for 10 years in a lab run by in Rick Luettich , director of the institute. UNC scientists and engineers developed their own autonomous vertical profilers to take water quality readings throughout the water column.  They have three profilers  placed in the New and Neuse rivers. The profilers are designed to drop a payload of sensors to an allotted depth at set time intervals. Instruments attached take readings continuously on the way down and up. Data collected by the profilers has been used to study water related issues such as infectious disease and sediment suspension.

USGS weather station network monitors Arctic Alaska's climate

When the U.S. Geological Survey began building their climate and permafrost monitoring network in Arctic Alaska in 1998, there wasn't much precedent for how to build the infrastructure for the instruments in the region's unforgiving environment. That meant the scientists had to learn the particulars on the fly. For example: On the great expanse of flat, barren tundra, a weather station sticks out like a sore thumb to a curious grizzly bear. "The initial stations were pretty fragile," said Frank Urban, a geologist with the USGS Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center. "So the bear and those stations--the bear won every single time without any problem.

As Arctic Permafrost Thaws, Northernmost Lakes Brown

More than 250 million years ago, massive volcanic activity in the region of what is now Siberia caused “The Great Dying,†a colorful name for the Permian mass extinction that wiped out most of the life on Earth at the time. Once the volcanic activity finally calmed down after a respectable one million years, about 96 percent of life in the ocean and 80 percent of life on land was gone. About 500 gigatons of carbon were left behind in that region, and as the Earth cooled, that carbon was sealed in the Permafrost that covers much of Siberia today. Permafrost is simply ground that stays frozen at or below 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit) all of the time. It does not necessarily contain ice; as long as it remains frozen solid, even completely dry ground is permafrost.
