The PortLog is a compact rugged industrial grade data logging weather station which measures temperature, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, relative humidity, dew point, solar radiation and rainfall. The unit is fully assembled and can be quickly deployed. The large 3-Watt solar panel and 5AH sealed lead acid battery ensure reliable operation in the harshest conditions.
The PortLog communicates directly to a PC via an RS232 serial port. During the data logging time interval, the wind speed and wind direction are averaged. The maximum wind speed is also captured and the solar energy calculated. All data is saved to non-volatile RAM. Selectable units are English and Metric with wind speed also recorded in Knots and Meters per Second. Solar Radiation is in SI units only.

RainWise is one of the oldest players in the weather monitoring market, having been around since 1974. For reference, that’s only 4 years younger than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Through the years this Maine-based company has logged several advancements in the field starting with RainWise’s very first product, the tipping bucket rain gauge, which is now an industry standard. Since then they have introduced the first consumer digital weather station and the first wireless consumer weather station among other pioneering innovations.
With more than 40 years of experience, the products that RainWise produces today are just as inspired.Read More
Recent research from a University of Guelph (U of G) team reveals that warmer temperatures caused by climate change are forcing species to alter their behavior, causing food webs in Ontario lakes to transform. As temperatures warm, larger species hunt new prey in deeper waters, changing the ways nutrients and energy flow in lakes and triggering a “rewiring” of food webs.
Dr. Timothy Bartley , study lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the U of G's Department of Integrative Biology , spoke to EM about the work .
“I got started on this when I first began graduate school and joined an ongoing project, which was a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ,” explains Dr. Bartley.Read More
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 .Read More
