With its large four-digit LCD display (measuring 4.3 inchesx 4.3 inches x 3.5 inches), rugged water-resistant construction and advanced features, Si-Tex's SST-110 is ideal for a wide range of recreational and commercial fishing vessels.
An affordable, waterproof, analog sea surface temp instrument with LARGE digital numbers that can literally be seen from 15 to 20 feet away. With its large four-digit LCD display (measuring 4.3 inchesx 4.3 inches x 3.5 inches), rugged water-resistant construction and advanced features, Si-Tex's SST-110 is ideal for a wide range of recreational and commercial fishing vessels. It can be easily installed on the flybridge of a large sportfisherman or on the instrument panel of a 17-foot open center console. It has the ability to view water temperature at a glance (in 0.01-degree Fahrenheit/Celsius resolution), find favorable temperature zones and pinpoint critical off-shore temp breaks. For maximum accuracy and to compensate for slight differences in transducers, the displayed temperature can be easily calibrated by the operator using the SST-110's front panel keys. Boaters can also set high and low temperature alarms for audible alerts to temperature fl uctuations or hard temperature edges. A temperature trend arrow on the display tells the user at a glance if sea temperatures are getting warmer, cooler or remaining constant.
For operation in any onboard environment or ambient light conditions, the SST-110 offers five levels of backlighting that can be selected and remotely switched On/Off . All set up and calibration constants are saved to a nonvolatile memory, retaining settings for the next time the unit is powered up. For easy integration on most professional fishing vessels, the SST-110 outputs standard NMEA 0183 water temperature data and works on both 12 and 24 VDC systems. Even with its large digital display, the SST-110 draws only 0.35 amps (0.55 amps with full backlighting).

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.Read More
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.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
