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
New research from scientists at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) shows that an approach that assesses cumulative risk from water contaminants could save lives. EWG senior scientist Tasha Stoiber spoke with EM about how the team developed the innovative new approach .
“Our organization has worked extensively on tap water over the years, and an updated version of our tap water database was just released in 2017,” explains Dr. Stoiber. “We've been thinking about new ways to analyze that data.”
Right now, the risk from contaminants in water quality is assessed one at a time—but that really doesn't comport with reality.Read More
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW ) scientists are using a customized underwater robotic vehicle (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) called the Saab Seaeye Falcon on a critical conservation study of threatened and imperiled rockfish. Dr. Dayv Lowry , a Senior Marine Fish Research Scientist, spoke to EM about using the ROV to facilitate rockfish conservation and recovery in the Puget Sound.
“In the Pacific Northwest, the Washington and Oregon coast, several species of Rockfish have been fished for decades, with up- and downswings in abundance,” explains Dr. Lowry. “When fishing pressure decreases, and the stocks start to recover, we have gone back to fishing—the pendulum has swung over the years.Read More
