AIS Input
Have an AIS receiver or transponder on your vessel? The GX2000 MATRIX is the perfect radio of choice for you! When the MATRIX is connected to a AIS receiver or transponder (with VDM AIS sentence output at 38400 baud) the display will show AIS targets simply by pressing the dedicated AIS key. The MATRIX will display AIS MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG and will allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be approaching to close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm.

Navigate to Waypoints
The MATRIX is capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints. These waypoints may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display that shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint when connected to an external GPS.

Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
The MATRIX is Class D class DSC VHF with a separate Channel 70 receiver, which allows DSC calls to be received even when listening to traffic on Marine VHF channels.

The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be made are Individual, All ship - Urgency and Safety, Group, Position report and position request calls.

DSC Position Polling and NMEA in/output
Easily share position information with other DSC equipped vessels using the position request and position reporting functions. With the push of a few buttons you can request the position of another vessel, or simply send your position information to the vessel you select.

The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can be shown on a compatible GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA wires.

ClearVoice noise reduction technology speaker microphone
The MATRIX features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission. This assures transmissions are crystal clear along with dedicated 16/9 key and channel selection. In addition the microphone includes a speaker for crystal clear receiption of transmissions.

Commercial grade 80dB receiver
Advanced receiver technology rejects the reception of unwanted signals from pagers and other unwanted VHF frequencies. In addition the MATRIX has an receiver attenuator to futher reduce noise in busy harbors and marinas.

30W PA and Fog signalling
The MATRIX includes a 30W Loud Hailer with Fog signals; Bells and Whistles. For added benefit, the last selected VHF channel can be heard when in the PA or Fog modes.

Big, bold display
There is no question about it. With a big, bold display there is no mistaking the information. The contrast and brightness can be adjusted for situations where the radio cannot be mounted directly in front of you.

Programmable Channel Names
The MATRIX is supplied from the factory preloaded with description of the use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure...). The channel names may be customized by the user to easily understand the use of each channel.

GPS repeating
By connecting a GPS to the MATRIX; Position, date, and time are also displayed when interfaced with a GPS receiver.

Optional RAM3 capable
Need to remotely control the VHF from your cockpit of fly bridge? The MATRIX is RAM3 remote mic capable to control all VHF, DSC and AIS* functions at a second station.

AIS receiver or transponder connection required.

Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch
Scanning is not an issue with the MATRIX. The radio can be setup to scan any number of channels with or without a priority channel or simply can be setup to scan between a priority channel and on other channel (dual watch).

NOAA Weather channels and Weather Alert
10 NOAA and Canadian Weather channels are pre-programmed and easily selectable using the dedicated WX key. In addition, the MATRIX can be set to monitor WX channels and provide an audible alert to inform of pending storm advisories.

White River Monitoring Backs Work to Boost River’s Civic Profile

The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.

Baking in the Sun: How Groundwater Recharge is Likely to Change as the Climate Does

Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.

NCAR Model Gives U. of Texas Researchers Advanced Tool for Predicting La Niña Drought Impact

[caption id="attachment_27967" align="alignright" width="320"] Jason-3 sea level residuals on 12/07/2017. (Courtesy: NASA/JPL-Caltech.)[/caption] El Niño and La Niña are recurrent warming and cooling patterns in the tropical Pacific Ocean that affect weather patterns around the world. While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.
