Details

Incorporating new and improved hydrostatic inflation technology, and a durable and easy-to-use SecureZip PFD closure system, the Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable Vest with LIFT is a lightweight inflatable PFD designed with a shorter length and a low and flexible profile to ensure total mobility during even the most rigorous activities.

Made primarily for performance sailors and power boaters, and security and rescue professionals, the Vest is also an excellent choice for individuals who desire added protection.

Engineered with the revolutionary LIFT PFD design, the Vest delivers a high level of safety for users in variable wind and wave conditions by elevating the mouth out of the water by up to 9 inches (23cm). Known as freeboard, this increase in elevation has been shown to reduce underwater mouth immersions by 80%, increasing the chance of survival in accidental immersion situations.
  • 40 lb buoyancy when inflated
  • LIFT provides up to 9" of freeboard - the highest elevation out of water ever seen in a PFD - for extra safety in severe weather. This reduces mouth immersions and increases visibility to rescue crews.
  • Auto hydrostatic inflator is maintenance free for 5 years unless inflated
  • When inflated, LIFT bladder has stabilizing wings on sides and behind the neck to provide support in rough waters
  • Safety Inspection Window - window allows user to easily inspect inflator status: green indicates inflator is ready for use
  • SecureZIP closure withstands rigorous activity and is easy to repack
  • Comfortable neoprene collar
  • Mesh back allows for good air flow to keep wearer cool
  • Durable 420-Denier nylon
  • Cylinder is contained inside bladder to protect against corrosion
  • Backup oral inflation tube
  • Strobe light holder, safety whistle and SOLAS reflective tape
  • D-ring

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.

AS IF: North Carolina Biological Station Inspires Researchers and Artists to New Heights

Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.

Floating, Diving Robots in the Southern Ocean

The polar regions of the world have always a challenge for scientists to explore and study. Even logistics that are typically no more than passing concerns under other circumstances such as transportation become major problems during polar wintertime. Now, r esearchers are reporting on their use of hundreds of oceanic floats that are drifting and diving their way through the Southern Ocean, including under its ice, with surprising results. Happy robotic wanderers EM spoke with Dr. Alison Gray , assistant professor of physical oceanography at the University of Washington , to find out more about the work, the robots, and the significance of the findings in improving our understanding of the global climate and this poorly studied region.
