The SVR is a handheld surface velocity radar (SVR) gun specifically designed to measure the surface velocity of water - great for use in streams and rivers. Features such as Recall allows you to review the previous measurement. Other features are selectable through the menu option.

The radar gun features a tilt sensor system, which internally compensates for the cosine angle effect of the vertical (pitch-down)angle of the gun to the target. It is not necessary to manually set the tilt sensor.

Wildfire smoke alters a lake's ecology from the top to the bottom of the food chain

Wildfires have been big news the last couple of years. Australia’s wildfires in 2019 and 2020 made headlines around the world. The American west has had record-breaking burns in recent years, blanketing cities in dangerous amounts of smoke and sending haze across the continent to the east coast. For smoke's clearly apparent effects in the sky, new research finds it changed the ecology of Castle Lake, a freshwater lake in California, in 2018. “There are some studies that have analyzed the effect of human health in respiration with the smoke of wildfire,” said Facundo Scordo, a postdoctoral researcher at the Global Water Center of the University of Nevada—Reno.

New tech aims to make algal bloom monitoring faster, more dynamic

The fight against harmful algal blooms is getting a bit quicker, nimbler and more precise thanks to new technology that provides a cell-by-cell, colony-by-colony view of bloom make up and toxicity. “Typically a cyanobacteria community is highly variable. Certain species will dominate one week, and then another will dominate the next week or so,” said Dr. Scott Gallager, president of Coastal Ocean Vision, a company that hopes to change the way algal blooms are monitored with their new technology, Continuous Particle Imaging and Classification System (CPICS) and HABStats. The instruments, which measure algal blooms with a combination of imaging and spectroscopy, will provide water quality managers with a new, real-time monitoring tool to keep water safe and accessible.

Covid clears the waters around Key West

In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a period of unexpected environmental optimism. Wild goats roamed the streets of a town in Wales after its residents retreated indoors. Air quality improved in metropolises around the world. As shipping paused or slowed down, the oceans were quieter than they have been for some time. Now research shows that water quality improved around Key West, Florida, during 2020, a year in which the Covid-19 pandemic kept people indoors and slowed boat traffic. A Visible Difference Henry Briceño first found out about the clearer water around Key West from locals who noticed a difference. So he decided to check those observations against the data.
