The AeroCone rain collector reduces wind-induced errors by providing a more aerodynamic path around the collector. Its contours are designed to streamline the airflow and reduce flow distortions. The design improves rain data accuracy in high wind situations where the horizontal wind velocity can cause under reporting.

The enhanced design features don't stop with the outer shape: the inside of the rain collector is equally well designed, keeping intact the carefully engineered interior walls that reduce splash out during high rain conditions. The debris screen locks into place, ensuring that it remains in place during high winds and heavy rainfall events.

Digital Mayfly Data Logger Sensor Stations Monitoring Watersheds

For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed. “ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.

Solar and Wind-Powered, Algae Tracking Boat Trialed in Florida

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat. "This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.

CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region

The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A & M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.
