Details

The Stevens Hydra Probe II soil moisture sensor is an in-situ soil probe that measures 21 different soil parameters simultaneously. The Stevens Hydra instantly calculates soil moisture, electrical conductivity, salinity, and temperature as well as supplying raw voltages and complex permittivity for research applications. A compact, rugged design with potted internal components makes the Hydra Probe easy to deploy and leave in the soil for years with no maintenance.

The Stevens Hydra probe design is unique compared to other soil moisture probes because the electrical response of soils can be specified by two parameters - the dielectric constant and the conductivity. The dielectric constant is most indicative of water content, while the conductivity is strongly dependent on soil salinity. Unlike other capacitance type sensors, the Hydra Probe measures both of these components simultaneously. The high frequency electrical measurements indicating the capacitive and conductive properties of soil are then directly related to the soil's moisture and salinity content, while a thermistor determines soil temperature.

The sensor includes built-in RS-485 and SDI-12 outputs for interfacing with NexSens iSIC and SDL data loggers. Sensor cable can be factory-connectorized with NexSens underwater connectors for integration to an SDL submersible data logger sensor port. Data collection options include direct-connect, landline phone, cellular, radio, Ethernet, WI-FI, and satellite telemetry. NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing both locally (direct-connect) and remotely (through telemetry) to a NexSens data logger or network of data loggers.

Northern Kentucky U. Researchers Investigate Tradeoffs Of Green Infrastructure

Green infrastructure installations, like green roofs, permeable parking lots or bioswales, are increasingly popular these days. They are built for good reasons, like decreasing urban runoff or improving a stream’s water quality, among other things. But as with anything, there are tradeoffs to implementing them. A study led by scientists at Northern Kentucky University is evaluating some of the costs and benefits to using one type of green infrastructure in a study considering constructed wetland sites in Kenton County, Kentucky. The research, led by Sarah Stryffeler, an undergraduate student studying environmental science, has looked at multiple sites using gas-catching chambers that have given scientists the means to analyze the greenhouse gases emitted by the manmade wetlands.

Arsenic in Drinking Water: A Tale of Public and Private Water Sources, and Regulation

In recent months, a maelstrom of change has been rippling through many federal agencies, particularly those tasked with regulations connected to environmental science . Naturally, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is no exception, and may be one of the agencies seeing the most change . The idea in play appears to be the deregulation is going to achieve better outcomes for America and for citizens. However, recent research on arsenic in drinking water suggests otherwise, providing a crystalline example of how vitally important the work and regulations of the EPA really are.

Imperial County Residents Help Tackle Air Monitoring

Residents from Imperial County, California are benefitting from a new air quality monitoring network of low-cost environmental sensors that provide real-time pollution data. The county is subject to many air pollution sources such as field burning, unpaved roads, several industrial facilities and its close proximity to the Salton Sea. The City of El Centro, California, which is located in the county, has the fifth-worst air quality in the United States, according to a study by the American Lung Association. While there are several different types of air pollution, particulate matter (PM) is a main concern in Imperial County. PM is a mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air.
