The HOBO U30 USB Station is a weatherproof data logger designed for environmental monitoring applications. This rugged logger has a built-in rechargeable battery and supports up to 10 plug-and-play smart sensors and two optional analog inputs with sensor excitation. With HOBOware Pro, you can easily configure the logger, check the status, and download data for graphing and analysis. You can also use HOBOware Pro to set up a relay that can be activated on alarm conditions.

Normal operating range: -20°C to 40°C (-4°F to 104°F)
Extended operating range: -40 to 60°C (-40 to 140°F) - see "Rechargeable Battery service Life" for impact of operations in Extended Operating Range.
Sensor Inputs: 5 standard; option to expand to 10
Smart Sensor compatibility: Compatible with most Onset smart sensors, except for the S-BPA, S-TMA and S-THA
Data channels: Maximum of 15 (some sensors use more than one data channel)
Alarm output relay: Can be configured to be activated, deactivated or pulsed on user-defined sensor alarms. The relay can be configured as normally open or normally closed, and is rated for 30 V and 1 amp max.
Expansion slot: One expansion slot is available for factory-installed expansion port.
Local communication: Full Speed USB via USB mini-B connector

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.
