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.

Sunscreen Chemicals in Water Can Harm Zebrafish Embryo Development

If you've ever sat at the beach or on the shore of a lake reapplying your sunscreen and wondered what happens to that sunscreen as it washes off in the water, you're in good company. A team of researchers has been investigating how sunscreen chemicals affect marine wildlife, and their recent paper indicates that ultraviolet (UV) filters from sunscreen and other personal care products can affect zebrafish embryo development. UV filters in the water Dr. Adela Jing Li's group at Hong Kong Baptist University has been studying UV filters for several years.

Low Tech, High Tech and Outdoor Exploration: Butler County Stormwater Monitoring Runs The Gamut For Summer Intern

For ten weeks, from mid-June to mid-August of this year, University of Dayton Environmental Biology major/English minor Tessa Farthing learned how to go out in the field and assess the health of stormwater inlets and outfalls in various places in Butler County, a 470 square mile area between the cities of Dayton and Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio. Not only was she trained in how to find inlet and outfall areas, which was sometimes challenging in and of itself, she was also trained to use some very sophisticated equipment. For some of the tasks she needed to do, however, it was the not-so-technical equipment that ruled the day. In addition to everything else, Farthing says, she was trained how to use her nose.

Sustainable, Sponge-like Material Takes the Color Out of Dyes

Dyes are part of manufacturing everything from clothing to food all over the world. In fact, every year about 700,000 metric tons of dye change the hue of consumer goods. However, about ten percent of that dye ends up in the world's waterways, sometimes with toxic results. Even non-toxic dyes pose a threat in the environment, because changing the color of the water in streams, lakes, holding ponds, and rivers can mean interfering with plants' ability to photosynthesize. This, in turn, disrupts the rest of the local ecosystem.
