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
River management is inherently complex, demanding mastery of constantly dynamic conditions even when the climate is stable. As the climate changes, however, river management will become even more difficult and unpredictable—and old models and techniques are likely to fail more often.
Now, researchers from around the world are calling for attention and change to how we manage and model the rivers of the world. Dr. Jonathan Tonkin , a Rutherford Discovery Fellow at New Zealand's University of Canterbury , spoke to EM about why he is arguing that current tools for river management are no longer enough as even historical baseline river ecosystem conditions themselves are changing.
This summer a new way to learn about water recreation—and environmental stewardship—paddled into Ohio. With the help of the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) , the US Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA's) Urban Waters Program brought the Wilderness Inquiry Canoemobile “floating classroom” to Toledo for a few days.
TMACOG Water Quality Planner Sara Guiher spoke to EM about the programming and the experience.
“In August of 2018 we spoke with a representative from US EPA Urban Waters,” explains Guiher. “We received funding through them to bring programming to the area focused on urban water resources. The person that we talked to from US EPA suggested Canoemobile, which we had never heard of.Read More
