The CB-25 Data Buoy is a compact, affordable, and easy to deploy platform for both water and atmospheric observations. At 18” hull diameter and 22 lb. (9.98kg) weight, it can be used for drifting, tethering or mooring applications. The buoy integrates the X2-SDLMC Submersible Data Logger, which includes external sensor ports to support weather stations, thermistor strings, multi-parameter sondes, Doppler current profilers, GPS, and other monitoring instruments.

Constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin, the CB-25 is designed for years of service. A rechargeable battery with integrated solar panels power the system continuously, and all electronics are housed in a quick-removable X2-SDLMC data logger package with wet-mate connectors. Three 1.5” pass-through holes facilitate cable routing of underwater sensors.

Available with integrated 4G cellular or Iridium satellite communications, the CB-25 buoy sends data in real-time to the cloud-based WQData LIVE datacenter. In a basic configuration, this free service allows users to securely access and analyze data, as well as share data through an API or auto-report. Subscription-based tiers of WQData LIVE are also available for advanced reporting, alarming, and data management.

Balancing Forest Biodiversity and Land Use Benefits

A new study by Fangyuan Hua, Assistant Professor at Peking University’s Institute of Ecology, compiles data showing that restoring native forests results in better biodiversity, greater carbon storage and more soil conservation and water provisioning benefits. However, the data also indicates that tree plantations are better at providing wood. The benefits and downsides of each forest type lead to tradeoffs in land management practices. In their paper , Hua and colleagues explore the advantages and disadvantages of different forest types, hoping to point the way toward better forest restoration practices. They hope to encourage practices that balance environmental goals with wood production needs.

Protecting Endangered Species: Conducting Mussel Surveys

*This is part two of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part one, click here * With over 300 endangered mussel species in the United States, environmental agencies like EnviroScience rise to the challenge of protecting these vital species. When new construction sites are determined, the Endangered Species Act steps in to protect any endangered wildlife within the impacted area. Unfortunately, the protocols surrounding these protections can be complex and difficult to understand, making the work of scientists like Greg Zimmerman, Corporate Vice President for EnviroScience and an endangered mussel surveyor, vital to protecting biodiversity.

Protecting Endangered Species: Why Freshwater Mussels Matter

*This is part one of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part two, click here * Though few people pay any mind to the occasional “clam” shell spotted along a river bank or lake, these small but mighty creatures are deeply important to water systems across the United States, and many of them are federally and state endangered. Greg Zimmerman of EnviroScience, Inc.  shares, “We have about 300 species of mussels in the U.S., compared to other regions of the world like Europe that have under 20 species.” Zimmerman spent his life around water and always knew he wanted to return to help protect aquatic ecosystems. “I’ve always had a love of water, since I was 2. I grew up on an island in Buckeye Lake in Ohio.
