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 X2-SDL 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 X2-SDL submersible data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include cellular, Iridium satellite, and spread spectrum radio. The X2-SDL is configured with three sensor ports for connection to industry-standard digital interfaces including RS-485, RS-232 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.

New Technologies Reducing Uncertainty in Estimation of River Flow

Some of the most interesting data in the world of river and stream monitoring come at times when it's practically impossible to capture—during extreme weather events, for example. Timing alone makes capturing unusual events a challenge, and these kinds of issues have prompted researchers to use classic monitoring data along with new technologies to develop and improve hydraulic modeling for estimating river flows. Steven Lyon , a Conservation Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, Professor at Stockholm University and Associate Professor at The Ohio State University, spoke with EM about the research .

Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point: Monitoring New York’s Largest Interior Lake for Sixty Years

Lars Rudstam, Professor of Aquatic Science at Cornell and Director of the Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point, says that he has long held an interest in lakes in general, so naturally the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater lake system in the world, have held a fascination for him for many years. He also works on Oneida Lake, the largest lake wholly inside New York. Oneida Lake waters, traveling from the Lake to the Oneida River, then to the Oswego River, ultimately flow into Lake Ontario. “In addition to lakes in general and the Great Lakes, I have been especially interested in the impressive data series that has been collected for Oneida Lake,” Rudstam notes.

Alabama’s Dauphin Island Sea Lab Features Diverse Environmental Monitoring

Named after French royalty, Dauphin Island sits on the Gulf of Mexico. It is an important stop for many migratory birds traveling from South America as well as many human visitors in search of beach scenery. It is also home to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL), which serves as the main educational and research center for marine science studies in Alabama. One of DISL's most impressive gems is the Estuarium, a large aquarium where the public can view estuarine organisms native to Alabama which includes a 12,500 square foot exhibit hall. Aquatic life from the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico are featured. Outside the aquarium is the Living Marsh Boardwalk, which looks over Mobile Bay .
