The Vaisala Mounting Kit offers an optional mounting solution for use with WXT and WMT series transmitters.
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.Read More
A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
