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

Digital Mayfly Data Logger Sensor Stations Monitoring Watersheds

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.

Solar and Wind-Powered, Algae Tracking Boat Trialed in Florida

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat. "This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.

CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region

The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A & M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.
