The portable AMS Hollowstem auger kit provides the tools needed to reach a 6' depth. The augers cut a 3" diameter hole and have an ID of 1 1/8", making them suitable for soil, soil gas and groundwater sampling through a cased hole.

A special Hollowstem soil probe, 7/8" OD by 24" long with slide hammer is included to allow collection of a soil sample through the auger. The AMS gas vapor probes may be used through these augers telescopically. Bailers up to 1" diameter may be used to collect groundwater samples.

Farmer-invented automated soil sampler reduces human error

A North Carolina farmer has developed a mobile soil sampling system with virtually no risk of human error, Southeast Farm Press reported. Allan Baucom, a grain and cotton farmer with more than 6,000 acres around Monroe, N.C., built the automated soil sampler to keep up with his expanding agricultural operations -- and growing variety of soil types. Named “the Falcon”, the sampler can take up to 12 samples and once, and store 200 before being unloaded. Two Falcons currently exist: one works Baucom’s farm, while the other operates on farms around the country to ensure the sampler’s efficiency in different environments. The sampler is expected to be made available soon, and will host new features, such as computer-interfaced electronic system for use with a laptop or tablet.

Thin Ice: Year-Long Monitoring in Missouri Reservoirs

The value of multi-lake studies is well understood by international organizations like the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and the scientists who work tirelessly to provide data to the larger network. Rebecca North, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia , is one of many researchers involved in multi-lake research initiatives and conducting research locally in her home state. Having been born and raised on the shore of Lake Ontario, North grew up in a community that revolved around water. She also saw firsthand one of the worst water quality bodies of the world, the Bay of Quinte, decline throughout her lifetime.

Duality of Science: The Importance of Science Communication for Promoting Change

It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.  From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.
