Is there a possibility that the messenger will get lost during sampling?
The messenger is a brass weight with a hole through it that is threaded onto the cord (much like a large metal bead). When you are ready to take the sample, let the messenger slide down the line where it will trigger the release mechanism to close the sampler bottle. As it remains on the line once deployed (it will rest on top of the release mechanism until retrieved) it will not get lost during sampling. Care should be taken not to lose the messenger prior to sampling (don't remove it from the line while setting up or storing).
Mike Shelton, natural resources planner for Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), has spent 17 years at the Reserve. The Reserve was founded in 1986 and is located in the Alabama and Florida coastal region. “It’s a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Places like this are why we live on the coast,” he enthuses. “There’s also a lot of history here. It’s one of the first areas settled by the Europeans after they arrived in America. The city of Pensacola was the second city built in the U.S.,” adds Scott Phipps, research coordinator for Weeks Bay NERR. Weeks Bay NERR monitoring follows the same System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) as the other 28 NERRs, which includes deploying data-gathering sondes throughout the Bay.Read More
Part of the secret to knowing just how much Earth's oceans have warmed as its climate has changed in the past—and might change in the future—might be locked in the ice of Antarctica. A research team has discovered a way to use noble gas ratios to calculate the average temperature of the oceans of our past. Geoscientist and study author Dr. Jeff Severinghaus and teammates from Scripps Oceanography and other institutions in Japan and Switzerland worked together on the tricky problem of measuring ocean temperatures of the past. Until now, the distribution of different water masses around the globe has made determining changes in the average temperature of the world's oceans nearly impossible.Read More
A pair of lonesome data buoys bobbing off Michigan’s storm-whipped Lake Superior shore were suddenly the stars of the state this fall when they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes. The buoys, near Granite Island and Munising, each recorded 28.8-foot significant wave heights during a storm that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage along the coast. The record wave height exceeded the previous 27.6-foot record set by a Michigan Tech buoy near Houghton, Mich., in 2012. To give some perspective on the rarity of these types of events, waves at the record-capturing buoys only climbed above 12 feet four times throughout 2015 and 2016.Read More
