All analog signals are converted to serial format for clear transmission. The serial interface greatly simplifies connection of meteorological sensors to recording electronics with serial inputs. By transmitting the signal in serial form, sensor data can be carried over great distances using a minimum number of conductors. The digital signal is more resistant to electrical interference and errors from line losses. Model 32500 is supplied in a weather-resistant enclosure and comes with a mounting adapter to fit on the same vertical mast as RM Young wind sensors.

In The News
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
For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
