Details

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.

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.

Acid Rain Data Helping Scientists Tackle Water Quality Issues

Since the 1980s, scientists from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) have been sampling water from acid-impaired ponds and lakes and tracking data related to acidity. The line of inquiry began in response to concerns about acid rain, but DEC scientists now find that the long-term monitoring is not only proving the efficacy of the Clean Air Act but also improving local water quality. Guarding the environment in Vermont Rebecca Harvey is a VT DEC scientist, and monitoring the state's waterways for acidity and other problems falls in part to her. Dr. Harvey corresponded with EM about this work.
