Details

The Davis Vantage Vue 2nd Sation Console/Receiver includes an outdoor integrated sensor suite that transmits outside sensor data to a console via a low-power radio. The console displays all of the information coming from the ISS, and can also receive data from a Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station. The console also displays and records a stations' weather data, providing graphs and alarm functions, and interfaces to a computer using the optional WeatherLink software. It allows users to view multiple screens of weather data simultaneously.

 

Vantage Vue displays current outdoor and indoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction, dew point, and rainfall data points. It also shows weather forecast icons for moon phase, and sunrise/sunset time. The console updates outside temperature every 10 seconds and inside temperature every minute. Outside humidity is updated every 50 seconds and inside humidity every minute. The five-position trend arrow shows whether barometric pressure is rising, falling, or stable. Rain totals and rain rates are updated every 20 seconds for the last 25 hours, days, and months. 

 

The Weather Center provides additional information for each weather variable, such as highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, and barometric value changes. It also displays astronomical data such as meteor showers. The glow-in-the-dark, domed buttons give access to weather information day or night. Users can view up to 50 graphs for the last 25 hours, days, or months for rain, temperature, rain, rain rate, wind, and barometric pressure. The data point on the graph shows the weather during the same time of the previous day to help compare and analyze the day-to-day weather trends. 22 user-selectable alarms offer warnings of dangers such as high winds, freezing temperatures, rain rates, and flood warnings. Windspeed is updated every 2.5 seconds, and displayed in miles per hour, meters per second, kilometers per hour, and knots. The console also provides the average and high wind speed at two-minute and ten-minute intervals.

Inside the Struggle to Designate Lake Erie's Water Impaired

Since the mid-1800s, Ohio has been a locus for industry . As the state cranked out steel, rubber, automotive parts, appliances, glassware, and refined oil, its economy grew—but pollution also became a serious problem . Factories dumped refuse into rivers and into Lake Erie, agricultural runoff ended up there, and city sewers also emptied into the lake. By the late 1960s, the Cuyahoga River had caught on fire, and the shores of Lake Erie were lined with dead fish as algal blooms flourished in its waters. The fiery river and the presumed “death†of Lake Erie prompted changes at both the local and national level. Leaders in Cleveland worked to improve the sewage system and monitor water quality more effectively.

Deltas in Decline: Mapping the Retreating Seafloor of the Mississippi River Delta

The rapid coastal land loss that the state of Louisiana has been experiencing over the past century has been reported on many times. We know that Louisiana loses about 1 football field's worth of land every hour, and that some of the first “climate change refugees†in the US are coming from Louisiana as towns like Isle de Jean Charles disappear into the water. New research from a Louisiana State University (LSU) team reveals that land loss is also occurring underwater. The disappearing seafloor in the Mississippi River Delta (MRD) is threatening various marine flora and fauna, and contributing to pollution in the Gulf of Mexico. The team mapped the shrinking seafloor in their study, detailing the effects the loss is having on the region.

Revolutionizing Conventional Solar Water Evaporation With Hydrogels

Saline water—classified as having more than 1,000 ppm of dissolved salts —can be made into freshwater through desalination. The process is typically fueled by the sun, or by some other power source heating the water; after the heat energy turns the saline water into steam, one captures the steam, and then distills it back into water as it cools and condenses. On a small scale, such as that of an individual-sized still, it's a simple, rain-inspired process, albeit a slow one. Large-scale methods are available, but to be practical, these technological processes have to remain on a massive scale, and any way you slice it, they are energy-intensive, costly, and require large-scale facilities.
