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.

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.
