Details

The optional Vaisala Bird Spike Kit for WXT and WMT transmitters is designed to reduce the interference that birds cause to the wind and rain measurement. The kit consists of a metallic band with spikes pointing upward. The kit is installed on top of the transmitter and attached with a screw. The shape and location of the spikes has been designed so that the interference with wind and rain measurement is minimal.

The spikes are designed not to hurt the birds; they are simply a barrier to make it more difficult for birds to land on top of the transmitter. Note that the Vaisala bird spike kit does not provide complete protection against birds, but it does render the transmitter unsuitable for roosting and nest building.

Vaisala WXT520: Weather station designed with monitoring systems in mind

The world’s weather is full of surprises. That makes a quality weather station a valuable piece of technology for monitoring systems. Vaisala's WXT520 multiparameter weather station is built with monitoring systems in mind. It monitors six weather parameters in real time, so users have the numbers on an unexpected rain storm or turbulent wind event. It can be a means of understanding weather events that caused a flush of nitrogen into a river or low water levels in a lake.  What’s more, with the help of a data logger and telemetry system, it can deliver that information to one’s desk so she can stay dry and keep an eye on the data during a storm. Three core components make up Vaisala’s WXT520 weather station.

University of Toronto Doctoral Student Sees Environmental Monitoring Future in Internet of Things

Researchers face many difficulties. Assessing the ecological health of large geographic regions, especially those with a low population and few research facilities, is one of the many challenges scientists face. One such region is the Ottawa River in Canada, nearly 800 miles long with an overall drainage area of 55,000 square miles. Not only is it vast, but there are few human inhabitants and few research outposts. While gathering representative water samples in such a region is difficult enough, there is also the challenge of responding in a timely manner when problems arise.

Minnesota Water Quality Certification Program Encourages Sustainable Farming Practices

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , agriculture is the leading probable source of impairments to assessed streams and rivers in the United States, and the third probable source to lakes. Agricultural impairments, typically considered nonpoint source pollution, include irrigation and stormwater runoff that carries animal waste, bacteria, fertilizer, naturally occurring metals, nutrients, pesticides, excess salt, and sediment. Unfortunately, this has at times positioned farmers—a group which has the most to gain from water quality initiatives—at odds with environmental agencies and scientists.
