OTT Pluvio2 S Precipitation Gauge

The high-quality OTT Pluvio2 S weighing precipitation gauge uses the weighing principle for dependably and precisely measuring the intensity and cumulative precipitation in each weather condition. Its compact designed collecting bucket featuring a 200 cm2 collecting area accepts up to 400 mm of precipitation. The instrument is a further development of the OTT Pluvio series that has been successfully used in more than 10,000 stations worldwide and offers state-of-the-art technology in compact design. It is designed for professional use, and is suited for weather observer measuring networks as well as for urban precipitation stations or weather service measuring fields where only limited space is available.

Its advanced technologies for data logging and processing including signal analysis, filtering, and noice reduction provide highly accurate results in a broad range of 0 to 3000 mm/h. The sophisticated mechanical and electronic design as well as lifetime calibration ensure long useful life with minimum maintenance requirements. Even units fitted with orifice rim heater may be used in reduced voltage operation for solar-powered stations.

Because of its compact design, the Pluvio2 S unit needs only little space and may be installed to 2-inch pedestals. Thus, it can be used to easily replace tipping buckets or manual rain gauges in existing installations and can even be installed to their devices carriers, eliminating the need for any concrete work.

The Birds and the Bees: Understanding the Diversity of Pollinators

Pollinators of all shapes and sizes are vital to ecosystems around the world. From the wide array of food people eat to the diversity of life around the planet, life would be very different without them. Pollinators are organisms that help carry pollen from one plant to another, and over 350,000 species can be found worldwide, according to The California Department of Fish and Wildlife . With the strong relationship between plants and pollinators, losing either would have detrimental impacts on ecosystems.  Over millions of years, both plants and pollinators have evolved alongside each other and formed unique adaptations that allow them to work together, expediting and enhancing the process of pollination.

Monitoring Volcanic Activity in Hawaii: Safeguarding Public Safety with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

The eight main Hawaiian Islands are made up of 15 volcanoes, six of which are active as of 2023 . Many locals live on or near an active volcano, making the monitoring and understanding of volcanic activity a core issue of public safety on the islands. Organizations like the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) have spent decades monitoring the islands’ volcanoes to protect the public, develop a deeper understanding of the islands’ volcanos and forecast eruptions whenever possible. Even those who live away from edifices like Mauna Loa often have connections to the people living near the volcano.

Crystal Clear Problems: Impacts of Water Transparency in Aquatic Ecosystems

From crystal clear alpine lakes to muddy rivers and boggy swamps, water transparency is an easily observable water quality parameter to anyone who takes a few moments to peer into the (sometimes) murky depths. Water transparency varies dramatically based on the location of bodies of water among different watershed environments, but it can also change quickly due to a variety of internal and external factors. At Miami University (OH), the Global Change Limnology Lab explores the many ways that water transparency impacts aquatic ecosystems. Operational for nearly 20 years, the lab trains undergraduate and graduate students and has conducted work from the midwest Great Lakes to Alaska, South America and New Zealand.  The Global Change Limnology Lab, headed by Dr.
