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.

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.
