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.

Low Tech, High Tech and Outdoor Exploration: Butler County Stormwater Monitoring Runs The Gamut For Summer Intern

For ten weeks, from mid-June to mid-August of this year, University of Dayton Environmental Biology major/English minor Tessa Farthing learned how to go out in the field and assess the health of stormwater inlets and outfalls in various places in Butler County, a 470 square mile area between the cities of Dayton and Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio. Not only was she trained in how to find inlet and outfall areas, which was sometimes challenging in and of itself, she was also trained to use some very sophisticated equipment. For some of the tasks she needed to do, however, it was the not-so-technical equipment that ruled the day. In addition to everything else, Farthing says, she was trained how to use her nose.

Sustainable, Sponge-like Material Takes the Color Out of Dyes

Dyes are part of manufacturing everything from clothing to food all over the world. In fact, every year about 700,000 metric tons of dye change the hue of consumer goods. However, about ten percent of that dye ends up in the world's waterways, sometimes with toxic results. Even non-toxic dyes pose a threat in the environment, because changing the color of the water in streams, lakes, holding ponds, and rivers can mean interfering with plants' ability to photosynthesize. This, in turn, disrupts the rest of the local ecosystem.

Underwater Robots to Monitor the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is composed of over 3,000 individual reefs, making it the most massive reef system on Earth. Its 900-plus islands cover more than 344,400 square kilometers, about half the size of Texas. That's a lot of ground to cover if you're a scientist or research team studying the reef; add in the difficulties inherent to conducting research underwater, including anything from sharks to bad weather, and you have a serious challenge on your hands. Now, a research team from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is trialing an underwater robot with a hyperspectral camera that works in tandem with aerial drones, testing their ability to monitor the GBR.
