Details

The Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station wirelessly transmits data up to 1000 feet. The station measures indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall. Tested to survive cyclic corrosion in extreme weather environments, the electronics are sealed inside the integrated sensor suite to provide protection against harsh weather or flying objects. The station updates every 2.5 seconds, and records wind speeds as low as 2 miles per hour, and as high as 150 miles per hour.

 

The weather station uses frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio for reliable data transmission, displayed on an easy to read LCD screen. A glow-in-the-dark keypad is used for night viewing and the domed buttons for a better feel. 50 on-screen graphs are used to compare current and past weather conditions. 22 alarms can be set to warn of dangers such as high winds or possible flooding. The radio is compatible with the Vantage Pro2, and the optional WeatherLink software can be used for extensive weather analysis and data storage. The software is compatible on PC's, Mac's, and internet versions.

 

Applications include home weather watching and gardening, monitoring weather at schools and universities, monitoring extreme weather conditions in marinas and vacation homes, and for use in fire fighting and emergency response.

Seeking an Elegant, Affordable Solution to Contamination

Dr. Charley Liberko of Cornell College's Department of Chemistry has an idea he's working to bring to fruition. “Imagine a remote village in an underdeveloped country whose only source of water is a stream contaminated with toxic levels of metal ions such as cadmium and nickel,” states Dr. Liberko. “The villagers take locally available woody plant material, soak it in potash, and heat it up for several days until the wood partially decomposes. They then filter their water through this material to remove the metal ions. When they are done with it, they put the material in a clay pot and heat it up even hotter until the organic matter decomposes completely, leaving the metal ion salts as a residue, safely in the clay pot.

New Fish Lab Offers Unique Opportunities

Sometimes scientists have to make an extraordinary effort to study the questions that concern them. In fact, they may even need to design and build labs to their specifications. This was the case with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln's (UNL’s) Fish Conservation Behavior and Physiology Lab , which serves as a locus for research on water management best practices based on fish physiology—work conducted by up and coming scientists as well as more established researchers. Dr. Jamilynn Poletto spoke to EM about how the lab was built and the work that is happening there. Building a customized solution “My problem was that in the lab we get city water from Lincoln, and any water from any city in the country has chlorine and chloramine in it,” explains Dr.

From Acid Rain to Cyanobacteria, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies is a Leader in Environmental Monitoring

Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies , an independent environmental research organization in Millbrook, NY, is a leader in environmental monitoring – particularly long-term monitoring that spans decades. Steve Hamilton is a freshwater ecologist at Cary Institute and professor at Kellogg Biological Station , a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), at Michigan State University. Hamilton explains, “Environmental monitoring is how ecologists keep a finger on the planet’s rapidly-shifting pulse. By tracking ecological indicators over long timescales, we can identify patterns and better understand how ecosystems are changing. This understanding will guide us as we work to adapt to and mitigate environmental degradation.
