Overview
The Onset HOBO U26 Dissolved Oxygen Logger measures and records oxygen concentrations in lakes, streams, rivers, estuaries, and coastal waters. The affordable and precise HOBO U26 data logger is recommended for aquatic biology and hydrology research projects. The Onset U26 Dissolved Oxygen Logger is the ideal tool for environmental impact studies as well as ecological and oceanographic research in freshwater and saltwater environments.

Rugged Dissolved Oxygen Technology
The HOBO Dissolved Oxygen logger is a standalone logger that uses RDO Basic Technology to measure dissolved oxygen (DO). The logger has an optical sensor that provides 0.2 mg/L accuracy. The logger also features an easily replaceable sensor cap and an integrated temperature sensor. Using the data offloaded from the Onset HOBO U26 logger, the HOBOware Dissolved Oxygen Assistant can calculate percent saturation and salinity-adjusted DO concentration as well as correct for measurement drift from fouling (additional meter or logger measurements required).

Current Monitoring after the Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse

On March 26th, according to The Baltimore Sun , a 984-foot, 112,000-ton Dali lost propulsion and collided with a support column of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, collapsing the structure. Soon after the event, search and rescue, salvage crews, and other emergency responders were mobilized after the collision. As salvage efforts progressed in early April, NOAA’s Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) responded to a request for real-time tidal currents data and deployed a current monitoring buoy—CURBY (Currents Real-time BuoY)—into the Patapsco River north of the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Soundscapes of the Solar Eclipse: Citizen Science Supporting National Research

On April 8, 2024, millions of people around the world had their eyes glued to the sky to witness a historic cosmic event. The total solar eclipse captured the headlines and the minds of many who became eager to gaze at the heavens as the sky went dark for a few minutes. However, not everyone used their sense of sight during the eclipse, some were listening to the sounds of the natural world around them as the light faded from above. The Eclipse Soundscape Project is a NASA-funded citizen science project that focuses on studying how the annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, and the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse impacted life on Earth.  The project revisits an initiative from the 1930s that showed animals and insects are affected by solar eclipses.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.
