Details

The CB-50 Data Buoy is designed for quick deployment in emergency response situations including industrial spills and natural disasters. The buoy can be deployed from small boats, large vessels or even helicopters, making it the ideal choice for applications where water needs to be monitored at a moment’s notice. Compatible instruments include turbidity sensors, dissolved oxygen sensors, hydrocarbon sensors, fluorometers, multi-parameter sondes, pressure transducers, and more.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin and stainless steel frame. The 5.5" ID center hole houses the SDL V2 data logging system, which includes integrated power supply and wireless antenna. A removable topside foam tower protects the electronics, supports solar marine lights, and offers a convenient lifting point via (3) 5/8" eyenuts. Optional accessories include instrument cages and mounting clamps to secure instruments to the platform.

The CB-50 Data Buoy is designed to accommodate NexSens SDL V2 submersible data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include cellular, Iridium satellite, and spread spectrum radio. The SDL V2 is configured with three sensor ports for connection to industry-standard digital interfaces including RS-485 and SDI-12. Additional sensor inputs are available through the use of adapters. All sensor connections feature a double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.

Meet The Stream Team: MVUUF Citizen Scientists Keep A Watchful Eye on Dayton’s Wolf Creek

Named for wolves that were once spotted in the area during the pioneer era, Wolf Creek of Dayton, Ohio is a waterway nearly 20 miles long, a southeast flowing tributary of the Great Miami River. Wolf Creek is one of the “five rivers” referred to in the name of Five Rivers MetroParks- - Dayton, Ohio’s premier park system. Five Rivers MetroParks was founded in 1963 with the goal of preserving green space for future generations. The “five rivers” in its name refer to the Miami River, Stillwater River, Mad River, Twin Creek and Wolf Creek which run through the region. The area has many citizen scientist volunteers that help assess water quality in selected areas.

No Evidence of Natural Gas From Fracking In Ohio Drinking Water

A recent study of Appalachian Ohio drinking water from private wells found no evidence of natural gas contamination from “fracking” (drilling for oil and gas) despite concerns about the practice. University of Cincinnati geologists investigated drinking water in Carroll, Harrison, and Stark counties, a rural area in the northeast portion of the state, where private underground wells are the only source of drinking water for many residents. Associate professor of geology Amy Townsend-Small described the time-series study, which is the first to measure sources and concentrations of methane in the fracking region of Ohio, to EM.

Sedimentation Research Helps Determine Effects of Seabed Mining

Scientists from New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, NIWA , are engaging in sedimentation research to help determine the effects of seabed mining and fishing on the environment. This work represents some of the most challenging underwater research ever undertaken by the NIWA team. The need for the work arises from the controversy surrounding proposed seabed ventures—each of which was met with serious opposition based on presumed environmental effects such as drifting sediment plumes. In an effort to determine the full environmental impacts of such seabed activities, the NIWA team has undertaken an unusual project deploying high-tech instruments on the ocean floor. NIWA principal scientist and voyage leader Dr.
