Details

Overview
The award winning EnviroSCAN probe is the flagship product of Sentek. It provides the user with great flexibility for precision monitoring of volumetric water content at multiple depths in a soil profile. The EnviroSCAN probe first made its mark in irrigated agriculture, resulting in water savings of 30-50% and substantial yield and quality benefits. Today it is widely used in all forms of agriculture (irrigated and dryland), environmental applications, research and education, as well as turf, parks and gardens. The EnviroSCAN probe is the only commercially available product that allows for monitoring to great depths (up to 40 meters) using the same profiling probe.

The Technology
Sentek sensors utilize capacitance-based technology to provide near continuous measurements within the soil profile. By creating a high frequency electrical field around the sensor, extending through an access tube into the surrounding soil, the sensors detect the changes in the dielectric constant, or permittivity, of the soil over time. At high frequency, the measurement is affected predominantly by water molecules. The greater the amount of water, the smaller the frequency measured between the two brass rings of the sensor.

EnviroSCAN Sensor
The soil moisture sensor gives an output in volumetric water content (mm of water per 100mm of soil measured). This is converted from a scaled frequency reading using a default calibration equation, which is based on data obtained from numerous scientific studies in a range of soil textures. User-defined, or site specific calibration equations can be applied to each individual sensor to provide a high level of accuracy. Sentek's soil moisture sensor is suitable for use in all soil types under all conditions of soil water content, from saturated to oven dry.

Additional Features

  • Multiple sensors with flexible depth placement (at 10 cm increments)
  • Monitoring from shallow depths (0 - 10 cm) to deep installations (> 40 meters)
  • Length of probe customized to suit the application (probe length adjustable in the field)
  • Up to 16 sensors on one probe (moisture or moisture/salinity)
  • Built-in probe orientation and depth settings to enhance sensor repeatability
  • Full serviceability
  • Flexible connectivity for wide range of data retrieval options

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
