Details

Log real-time data, calibrate YSI 6-series sondes, set-up sondes for deployment, and upload data to a PC with the feature-packed YSI 650 MDS (Multiparameter Display System). Designed for reliable field use, this next generation display and data logger features a waterproof IP-67, impact-resistant case.

With the standard alkaline battery configuration of 4 C-cells, the YSI 650 MDS will power itself and a YSI 6600 sonde continuously for approximately 30 hours. Temperature-compensated barometer readings are displayed and can be used in dissolved oxygen calibration. Measurements can be logged to memory for tracking changes in barometric pressure.

Standard memory will allow for approximately 150 data sets. Exact logging capacity is dependent on the number of active parameters in the 6-series sonde. Optional high memory (1.5 MB) would make it possible to easily upload the data from 7 sondes, each of which have data files of approximately 75 days at a 15-minute sampling interval.

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.
