Intuitive, menu-driven interface
The menu-driven interface is easy to use. Attach your LI‑COR light sensor(s) to the three BNC connectors. Log manually or use menus to set up one-time, daily, or continual measurement routines. Sampling rates and logging intervals are user-selectable.

Fast measurements (500 Hz)
Use the LI‑1500 with one sensor to sample and log measurements up to 500 Hz — fast enough to measure the flicker rate of fluorescent, iridescent, incandescent, and LED light bulbs. Graph these large data sets on your computer using LI‑COR’s FV7x00 software, available for free download. Also view real-time light measurements, GPS data, and other variables on the eight-line display screen.

Global Positioning System (GPS) optional
The LI‑1500 features an optional global positioning system (GPS) for recording the location of measurements. The GPS facilitates repeated visits to the same location for tracking light levels over time. GPS data can be logged independently or with light data.

Weather-resistant, handheld operation
The LI‑1500 features a rugged housing and compact design suitable for handheld outdoor use. A rubber seal between the two halves also serves as a shock cushion. The LI‑1500 is powered by four AA batteries providing over 80 hours of operation with typical usage, or 40 hours with the GPS option turned on. Power can also be supplied from an AC wall outlet with the provided USB adapter.

Large memory (1 GB) that stores up to 100 sensor calibration coefficients
With one gigabyte of flash memory, the LI‑1500 stores a large amount of logged data on an internal SD card.

Store configurations and sensor-specific calibration coefficient information for later use. Download your sensor’s calibration certificate from the LI‑COR web site. Enter the calibration coefficient (multiplier) and date of last calibration just once.

When attached to a computer, the LI‑1500 acts as a mass-storage device with a simple drag-and-drop file system. Logged data can be transferred to a computer with the included USB cable. Data are formatted for easy import into widely used spreadsheet and database software. Configurations and sensor calibration data can also be transferred to a computer and then shared with other LI‑1500 units.

Connects to LI‑COR terrestrial and underwater light sensors
Use the LI‑1500 with LI‑COR sensors to log photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), global solar radiation, and light (the visible spectrum). Connect up to three sensors at the same time. For instance, use two PAR sensors to measure incident radiation above and below a plant canopy. You can also measure PAR along transects under a plant canopy.

The LI‑1500 features a built-in math function for measuring vertical attenuation using two underwater PAR sensors. The three input ports also allow for the measurement of incident PAR above water while measuring simultaneous upwelling and downwelling PAR below water.

New Monitoring Site for Ocean Acidification in American Samoa

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) at the University of  Hawaiʻi at Māno a , in collaboration with other partners, recently deployed a new ocean acidification (OA) monitoring site in Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary , American Samoa. Derek Manzello , a coral ecologist with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Florida, is the lead PI of ACCRETE: the Acidification, Climate and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team at AOML. Dr. Manzello connected with EM about the deployment. “ACCRETE encompasses multiple projects that all aim to better understand the response of coral reef ecosystems to climate change and/or ocean acidification,” explains Dr.

Extreme Wave Heights, Ocean Winds Increasing Globally

Around the world, extreme wave heights and ocean winds are increasing. The greatest increase is happening in the Southern Ocean, according to recent research from the University of Melbourne , and Dr. Ian Young corresponded with EM about what inspired the work. “Our main interest is ocean waves, and we are interested in wind because it generates waves,” explains Dr. Young. “Ocean waves are important for the design of coastal and offshore structures, the erosion of beaches and coastal flooding, and the safety of shipping.” Waves also have a role in determining how much heat, energy and gas can be trapped in the ocean. “The major reason why changes in wave height may be important is because of sea level rise,” details Dr. Young.

Measuring Rising Floodwaters with the USGS

All year long the US Geological Survey (USGS) in North Dakota and South Dakota monitors water levels, but during times of flooding, all eyes are on the team. EM spoke to USGS data chief Chris Laveau about the monitoring efforts. “The US Geological Survey in North Dakota and South Dakota is one entity, so we monitor the flooding in both states,” explains Mr. Laveau. “The role is to provide continuous information on water level, we call that gauge height or stage, and we also provide continuous information at a lot of locations on stream flow, typically called discharge. We do that year round but, obviously, during a flood event it garners more attention.
