The Solinst Levelogger Biofoul Screen is an affordable option to lengthen the time a Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge, or LTC Levelogger Junior can be deployed before maintenance is required.

 

When a Levelogger is deployed for extended periods, especially in coastal and saltwater environments, there is the risk of biofouling. Biofouling on the pressure sensor or conductivity cell can compromise the reliability of the readings.

 

Using the natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper, the Biofoul Screen is designed to reduce the unwanted buildup of microorganisms, plants, algae, or organisms such as barnacles and mussels.

 

The Biofoul Screen consists of a Delrin sleeve wrapped with copper wire. The Biofoul Screen simply slips onto the sensor end of the Levelogger, where it is held in place by friction fit. The screen allows water to freely enter the pressure sensor of any Levelogger, and the conductivity cell of an LTC.

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.

Eyes Underwater Watching Aquatic Wildlife

For as long as scientists have been studying the ocean, they have been limited by a lack of power. However, recent work from researchers at the University of Washington (UW) offers a promising new way to harvest energy from waves at sea. UW associate professor of mechanical engineering Brian Polagye spoke to EM about a recent project that used wave energy to power one of UW’s Adaptable Monitoring Packages, or AMPs. “Our work in this area has really been ongoing since about 2012,” explains Dr. Polagye. “We put our first prototype AMP in the water back in 2015. Since then, it’s been going through successive evolutions, variations on the package.
