Details

The RM Young 05103-45 Alpine Wind Monitor offers the added benefit of an ice-resistant coating on external surfaces, promising improved survivability for the most severe wind measuring applications. The wind direction sensor is a rugged molded vane.

The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Propeller diameter is slightly reduced from the standard model to minimize vibration at high speeds. External housing surfaces are coated with a specially formulated, ice-resistant coating to improve performance in harsh alpine conditions. The all-black color scheme further enhances ice-shedding performance of the sensor.

The instrument is made of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings. Precision grade, stainless steel ball bearings are used. Transient protection and cable terminations are in a convenient junction box. The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. A mounting orientation ring assures correct realignment of the wind direction reference when the instrument is removed for maintenance.

The Alpine Wind Monitor is available with two additional output signal options. Model 05103V-45 offers calibrated 0-5 VDC outputs, convenient for use with many data loggers. Model 05103L-45 provides a calibrated 4-20mA current signal for each channel, useful in high noise areas or for long cables (up to several kilometers). Signal conditioning electronics are integrated into the sensor junction box.

Village Green Project builds air quality awareness with monitoring park bench

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is on a mission to make air quality monitoring cheaper, easier and more accessible through the implementation of innovative new monitoring stations. The Village Green Project is a new initiative from the EPA that seeks to increase the scope of air quality monitoring by seamlessly incorporating monitoring devices into community settings. Led by Gayle Hagler, an environmental engineer at the EPA Office of Research and Development, an EPA design team has constructed a prototype that combines the ability to monitor ozone and fine particulate matter as well as wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity all into the functional design of a park bench.

NASA develops ocean surface wind speed measurements through GPS

Researchers from the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., have discovered that GPS signals can be used to accurately measure wind speed at the ocean’s surface,  National Geographic has reported . Researchers have concluded that by measuring the distortion in GPS signals bouncing off the ocean’s waves, they can successfully measure wind speed, even in the case of hurricanes and extreme weather. To measure the accuracy of using GPS for wind measurements, NASA scientists placed GPS receivers on NOAA research planes. They concluded that GPS data has an accuracy capable of detecting wind speeds within 11 miles per hour. Although not quite as accurate as direct wind speed measurements from NOAA dropsondes, the inexpensive nature of GPS data makes it a worthwhile alternative.

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.
