HyQuest Solutions’ TB7 is a new generation high-quality tipping bucket rain gauge for measuring rainfall and precipitation in remote and unattended locations. TB7 is a reliable ‘low cost’ device with a very good accuracy across a broad range of rainfall intensities.

The TB7’s tried and proven design ensures long-term, accurate and repeatable results. It is manufactured from high quality, durable materials ensuring long-term stability in the harshest of environments. Enclosure and base consists of robust UV-resistant ASA polymer, and fasteners and f lter are made of stainless steel.

TB7 provides a finger filter that ensures the collector catch area remains unblocked when leaves, bird droppings and other debris find their way into the catch. The TB7’s base incorporates two water outlets at the bottom allowing for water collection and data verification.

Maintenance of the TB7 is easy, because removal of the outer enclosure and access to the tipping bucket mechanism and finger filter assembly is made easy with quick release fasteners.

Questions & Answers
What is the purpose of the dual reed switch on the TB Series rain gauges?
Dual reed switches are provided for several reasons. First, two isolated switches permit the control of two separate circuits; e.g. a local counter and a telemetry circuit. Additionally, the parallel connection of both switches increases the current carrying capacity of the contact system if required. Finally, parallel switch operation confers a degree of redundancy in locations where data from the rain gauge is critical to flood warning, etc.

The Birds and the Bees: Understanding the Diversity of Pollinators

Pollinators of all shapes and sizes are vital to ecosystems around the world. From the wide array of food people eat to the diversity of life around the planet, life would be very different without them. Pollinators are organisms that help carry pollen from one plant to another, and over 350,000 species can be found worldwide, according to The California Department of Fish and Wildlife . With the strong relationship between plants and pollinators, losing either would have detrimental impacts on ecosystems.  Over millions of years, both plants and pollinators have evolved alongside each other and formed unique adaptations that allow them to work together, expediting and enhancing the process of pollination.

Monitoring Volcanic Activity in Hawaii: Safeguarding Public Safety with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

The eight main Hawaiian Islands are made up of 15 volcanoes, six of which are active as of 2023 . Many locals live on or near an active volcano, making the monitoring and understanding of volcanic activity a core issue of public safety on the islands. Organizations like the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) have spent decades monitoring the islands’ volcanoes to protect the public, develop a deeper understanding of the islands’ volcanos and forecast eruptions whenever possible. Even those who live away from edifices like Mauna Loa often have connections to the people living near the volcano.

Crystal Clear Problems: Impacts of Water Transparency in Aquatic Ecosystems

From crystal clear alpine lakes to muddy rivers and boggy swamps, water transparency is an easily observable water quality parameter to anyone who takes a few moments to peer into the (sometimes) murky depths. Water transparency varies dramatically based on the location of bodies of water among different watershed environments, but it can also change quickly due to a variety of internal and external factors. At Miami University (OH), the Global Change Limnology Lab explores the many ways that water transparency impacts aquatic ecosystems. Operational for nearly 20 years, the lab trains undergraduate and graduate students and has conducted work from the midwest Great Lakes to Alaska, South America and New Zealand.  The Global Change Limnology Lab, headed by Dr.
