Soil moisture-measuring robot wanders fields like a hamster ball

Though it may look like a simple hamster ball, a new spherical robot may assist farmers monitor soil moisture levels and temperature, according to a redOrbit.com article. Developed by a team from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Technical University of Madrid), the ROSPHERE wirelessly reports information from its sensors back to farmers, letting them know when their crops need attention. The ROSPHERE moves by shifting its center of gravity, similar to how a hamster rolls in its ball. This unique method of locomotion gives the ROSPHERE an edge over wheeled or tracked robots, which can struggle on uneven or cluttered surfaces. The scientists who designed the ROSPHERE are developing a second prototype with enhanced mechanics and the capability to utilize additional sensors.

Mining Waste Cleanup Reveals Interesting Lake Dynamics

For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like. “Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.

Narragansett Nature: Remote NERR is a leader in salt marsh stressor studies, crab studies and contributions to Rhode Island environmental policies

Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.
