The RM Young 06206 Marine Wind Tracker offers special features for ship-board use. Wind speed is displayed in your choice of units: KNOTS, MPH, KM/H, M/S. Maximum wind speed is saved on the display until reset by the operator.

Wind direction information is clearly displayed on a circular pattern of LEDs. Bold front panel graphics give a quick indication of wind angle relative to vessel heading. Brightness control allows adjustment for best viewing in any light. Luminous front panel markings allow viewing even in a darkened pilothouse.

4-20 mA inputs, Serial NMEA, and Voltage outputs are standard on the Marine Wind Tracker. Alarms for both wind speed and wind direction are included.

The Marine Wind Tracker is very compact. The face size is 144mm x 144mm to fit standard DIN panel configurations. Depth is 36mm for easy mounting on vertical bulkheads or wall surfaces. 12-30 VDC input power enables the Wind Tracker to be powered by ships batteries. A universal mounting bracket and AC wall adapter are also included. The Model 06260 Protective enclosure offers extra protection for wet or dusty locations.

UNC's industry-standard water quality profiling platforms get upgrade

The University of North Carolina Institute Of Marine Sciences has a history with profiling platforms. UNC engineers and scientists have been building the research floaters for 10 years in a lab run by in Rick Luettich , director of the institute. UNC scientists and engineers developed their own autonomous vertical profilers to take water quality readings throughout the water column.  They have three profilers  placed in the New and Neuse rivers. The profilers are designed to drop a payload of sensors to an allotted depth at set time intervals. Instruments attached take readings continuously on the way down and up. Data collected by the profilers has been used to study water related issues such as infectious disease and sediment suspension.

USGS weather station network monitors Arctic Alaska's climate

When the U.S. Geological Survey began building their climate and permafrost monitoring network in Arctic Alaska in 1998, there wasn't much precedent for how to build the infrastructure for the instruments in the region's unforgiving environment. That meant the scientists had to learn the particulars on the fly. For example: On the great expanse of flat, barren tundra, a weather station sticks out like a sore thumb to a curious grizzly bear. "The initial stations were pretty fragile," said Frank Urban, a geologist with the USGS Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center. "So the bear and those stations--the bear won every single time without any problem.

River Management On a Changing Planet

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. Dr.
