The real strength of the 26800 is the ability of the user to custom program the device to perform virtually any task. A user-friendly PC program allows easy formatting of the program parameters, display screens and recording functions. Programming is also possible using front panel controls when a PC is unavailable. The 26800 has built-in memory for storage of large amounts of recorded data. More than 2 million data points may be stored. Data retrieval is simplified by the included PC software program.
The RM Young 26800 Meteorological Display is supplied with a large selection of sensor inputs. Wind, temperature, precipitation, humidity and other sensors are easily connected through the back-panel terminals. Frequency, voltage, current-loop and serial inputs are provided. All values are completely scalable in the program. Many output options are available from the 26800. Terminals are available for calibrated voltage outputs and current outputs as well as serial outputs.
The RM Young 26800 Meteorological Display features a large, high-contrast LCD screen. The display text and layout are fully programmable so measured data can be displayed in a wide variety of formats. Up to 8 screens may be used, and display illumination is easily adjusted for best viewing in any light. The display's compact configuration makes it ideal for panel or wall mount application. The adjustable stand permits table top use as well.

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.Read More
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.Read More
Around the world, the occasional phenomenon known as sneaker waves poses a threat to beachgoers. Unusually large sneaker waves in 2016 and 2018 prompted Oregon State University (OSU) researchers to investigate these mysterious events. The research revealed the presence of runup signals that can provide earlier warnings to officials, reducing risk from these dangerous events.
Dr. Tuba Ozkan-Haller of OSU spoke to EM about the research .
“Sneaker waves occur in the Pacific Northwest, but they're also a worldwide phenomenon,” explains Dr. Ozkan-Haller. “Certain kinds of coastlines appear to be more well-suited to the occurrence of these waves. There are some characteristics that we know play into it, but there's still a lot of unknowns too.Read More
