Details

The RM Young 50202 Precipitation Gauge accurately measures rain or snow precipitation without moving parts. The precipitation gauge's unique design with centrally located capacitive sensor is not affected by unsteady conditions, making the instrument ideal for use on moving platforms such as buoys and ships.

Rain or snow collected in the catchment funnel is directed into the measuring chamber. The column level is sensed by a capacitive probe and converted to a linear voltage signal that can be read by external data collection devices such as the NexSens iSIC data logger. When the column level reaches a maximum of 250mm (50mm of precipitation), the chamber automatically empties and the process repeats. Total precipitation can be easily tracked and analyzed using NexSens data logging & telemetry systems.

The precipitation gauge offers durable thermoplastic construction with no moving parts for excellent corrosion-resistance and long term reliability. Insulated housings and thermostatically controlled heaters permit operation at temperatures below freezing.

What's Included:
  • (1) Precipitation gauge
  • (4) Bird wires
  • (2) Mounting bracket assemblies
  • (2) Mounting U-bolts

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.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.
