The RiverSurveyor M9 is a river discharge measurement system without the traditional limitations. Small, portable, and easy to use, the patented and award-winning RiverSurveyor measures in extreme flood or drought situations within a single instrument, and without changing user settings. The results speak for themselves - the RiverSurveyor M9 has revolutionized the way discharge is measured in rivers and canals.

Multiple acoustic frequencies with SmartPulseHD make for the most robust and continuous shallow-to-deep measurements ever and an array of four deterministic microcontrollers expertly apportion the proper acoustics, pulse scheme, and cell size allow users to focus on the measurement - not the setup. The system even has a vertical beam for accurate channel definition and it’s all designed to work intuitively. Slow to fast, shallow to deep, the RiverSurveyor M9 handles it all on the fly.

The RiverSurvery M9 will exceed your expectations during and after the measurement with the RiverSurveyor Live! software suite for both PC and mobile platforms. All programs take full advantage of SmartPulseHD and the intelligent software ensures no loss of data during telemetry dropouts, with multi-language support available. Easily switch between computer or mobile devices during mid-measurement. Several quality indicators and statistics with selectable graphics provide instant feedback on data collection.

The Frozen Frontier: Chasing Data in Antarctica

For Paul Savoy, sailing on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel as part of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) has been a dream come true, a “mountain top” for his career. “I grew up reading about the age of exploration, and the great polar explorers back in the day. Antarctica is one of the last remaining frontiers, along with the deep ocean and outer space. I was delighted to discover Antarctic research covers all three, with deep ocean research happening on the icebreakers and cosmological experiments at the South Pole. I’ve been applying for a job down here since I was 18. I got shortlisted a few times, but never actually got picked up until I was 32. Now I’m 35, and finally headed to the ice.

New Environmental Sensors and Data Acquisition Knowledge Base

NexSens Technology has worked for over two decades to simplify complex environmental data acquisition systems. The core components of these systems have always been the development of data loggers, configuration and data management software, and simplified sensor integrations. NexSens is excited to bring a new dimension to another critical aspect of real-time environmental monitoring: environmental sensors and data acquisition documentation through the revamped online Knowledge Base. The Knowledge Base serves as a living library, featuring the most thorough information, start-up instructions, integration guides, and other documentation available for NexSens systems and products.

The Tiniest Cars: Understanding the Effects of Microplastics on Coral

Like the microplastics she studies, Keiko Wilkins arrived at this point in her life through a long, multi-dimensional, and at times unexpected journey. Today she is a second-year graduate student in the doctoral program at the University of Hawaii , a graduate assistant at Kewalo Marine Laboratory , but her journey began in Pickerington, Ohio, a far cry from the sea. “I always had an interest in water, and I swam competitively,” she recalls. “I knew I wanted to study biology, but did I want to do research or education? So I explored biology further. My academic advisor worked on lakes and I focused on zooplankton in lakes, and changes in their populations. Fascinated by the ocean, I wanted to study it, but in Ohio, the ocean is, of course, out of reach.
