Details

The Vantage Vue® wireless Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) collects outside weather data and sends the data wirelessly to a Vantage Vue console via a low-power radio. The ISS is solar powered and includes a battery back-up. 

The Vantage Vue ISS contains a rain collector, temperature/humidity sensor, anemometer, and wind vane. The temperature/humidity sensor is mounted in a passive radiation shield to minimize the impact of solar radiation on sensor readings. The anemometer measures wind speed, and the wind vane measures wind direction.

 The Sensor Interface Module (SIM) is housed within the ISS and comprises the “brains” of the Vantage Vue system and the radio transmitter. The SIM collects outside weather data from the ISS sensors and transmits that data to your Vantage Vue console.

The fully-integrated, corrosion-proof sensor suite is built to take all the weather your location can give. The smaller profile sensor suite is designed to minimize visual impact in your yard or on your roof.

Wireless
Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 1,000' (300M) from integrated sensor suite to console.
Rain Collector
Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01" (0,2 mm) resolution.
Anemometer
Vantage Vue records wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and as high as 180 mph (290 km/h).
Weather Proof Cover
Corrosion-resistant cover provides durability in extreme conditions. Electronics are potted or over-molded for added moisture shielding.
Radiation Shield
Provides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
Temperature/Relative Humidity
Provides outside temperature readings from -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 65°C). Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%.
Easy Installation
Installs easily and quickly with included mounting hardware kit.
Wind Direction
Measures wind direction in compass points or degrees.
Solar Panel
Energizes the station during the day. On-board super capacitor provides power at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed.
Bubble Level
Allows for more accurate installation and better data collection.

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.

AS IF: North Carolina Biological Station Inspires Researchers and Artists to New Heights

Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.

Floating, Diving Robots in the Southern Ocean

The polar regions of the world have always a challenge for scientists to explore and study. Even logistics that are typically no more than passing concerns under other circumstances such as transportation become major problems during polar wintertime. Now, r esearchers are reporting on their use of hundreds of oceanic floats that are drifting and diving their way through the Southern Ocean, including under its ice, with surprising results. Happy robotic wanderers EM spoke with Dr. Alison Gray , assistant professor of physical oceanography at the University of Washington , to find out more about the work, the robots, and the significance of the findings in improving our understanding of the global climate and this poorly studied region.
