Details

Overview
The award winning EnviroSCAN probe is the flagship product of Sentek. It provides the user with great flexibility for precision monitoring of volumetric water content at multiple depths in a soil profile. The EnviroSCAN probe first made its mark in irrigated agriculture, resulting in water savings of 30-50% and substantial yield and quality benefits. Today it is widely used in all forms of agriculture (irrigated and dryland), environmental applications, research and education, as well as turf, parks and gardens. The EnviroSCAN probe is the only commercially available product that allows for monitoring to great depths (up to 40 meters) using the same profiling probe.

The Technology
Sentek sensors utilize capacitance-based technology to provide near continuous measurements within the soil profile. By creating a high frequency electrical field around the sensor, extending through an access tube into the surrounding soil, the sensors detect the changes in the dielectric constant, or permittivity, of the soil over time. At high frequency, the measurement is affected predominantly by water molecules. The greater the amount of water, the smaller the frequency measured between the two brass rings of the sensor.

EnviroSCAN Sensor
The soil moisture sensor gives an output in volumetric water content (mm of water per 100mm of soil measured). This is converted from a scaled frequency reading using a default calibration equation, which is based on data obtained from numerous scientific studies in a range of soil textures. User-defined, or site specific calibration equations can be applied to each individual sensor to provide a high level of accuracy. Sentek's soil moisture sensor is suitable for use in all soil types under all conditions of soil water content, from saturated to oven dry.

Additional Features

  • Multiple sensors with flexible depth placement (at 10 cm increments)
  • Monitoring from shallow depths (0 - 10 cm) to deep installations (> 40 meters)
  • Length of probe customized to suit the application (probe length adjustable in the field)
  • Up to 16 sensors on one probe (moisture or moisture/salinity)
  • Built-in probe orientation and depth settings to enhance sensor repeatability
  • Full serviceability
  • Flexible connectivity for wide range of data retrieval options

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.

AS IF: North Carolina Biological Station Inspires Researchers and Artists to New Heights

Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.

Floating, Diving Robots in the Southern Ocean

The polar regions of the world have always a challenge for scientists to explore and study. Even logistics that are typically no more than passing concerns under other circumstances such as transportation become major problems during polar wintertime. Now, r esearchers are reporting on their use of hundreds of oceanic floats that are drifting and diving their way through the Southern Ocean, including under its ice, with surprising results. Happy robotic wanderers EM spoke with Dr. Alison Gray , assistant professor of physical oceanography at the University of Washington , to find out more about the work, the robots, and the significance of the findings in improving our understanding of the global climate and this poorly studied region.
