Take soil measurements anywhere for those applications not requiring a permanent soil monitoring system. Your Apple or Android device communicates wirelessly with the HydraGO using an ad-hoc wi-fi radio link.
Simply insert the probe into the soil, and tap on the “Sample” button in the HydraMon app. The HydraGO Field portable communicates wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet using an ad-hoc wi-fi network created by the device itself.
The app will display soil moisture content, temperature, conductivity, and dielectric permittivity on-screen for immediate viewing. The GPS location, date and time of each measurement is recorded along with the soil measurement data. All data can be saved and emailed as a .CSV file for analysis in Excel.
The HydraGO Field portable system features a rugged, anodized aluminum housing that contains a rechargeable battery that powers the connected HydraProbe and built-in wi-fi radio. It also features an LCD screen that indicates battery voltage as well as an on/off switch. The HydraGO Field Portable comes with a carry strap for easy on-the-go measurements.

Around the world, the occasional phenomenon known as sneaker waves poses a threat to beachgoers. Unusually large sneaker waves in 2016 and 2018 prompted Oregon State University (OSU) researchers to investigate these mysterious events. The research revealed the presence of runup signals that can provide earlier warnings to officials, reducing risk from these dangerous events.
Dr. Tuba Ozkan-Haller of OSU spoke to EM about the research .
“Sneaker waves occur in the Pacific Northwest, but they're also a worldwide phenomenon,” explains Dr. Ozkan-Haller. “Certain kinds of coastlines appear to be more well-suited to the occurrence of these waves. There are some characteristics that we know play into it, but there's still a lot of unknowns too.Read More
Utah’s Canyonlands Research Center: A Great Study Location for Climate Effects on Ecosystem Processes, Community Dynamics and More
Canyonlands Research Center (CRC) is situated at The Nature Conservancy’s Dugout Ranch , over 5,200 private acres of research study area. One of CRC’s primary roles is to facilitate research and monitoring work of university and federal researchers. CRC is located adjacent to Canyonlands National Park , which extends over more than 337,000 acres of public land. CRC also partners with many organizations, including the Bureau of Land Management, USFS, NPS, USGS, Utah State University, and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to identify the most pressing research needs in this region.Read More
Recent research from a University of Guelph (U of G) team reveals that warmer temperatures caused by climate change are forcing species to alter their behavior, causing food webs in Ontario lakes to transform. As temperatures warm, larger species hunt new prey in deeper waters, changing the ways nutrients and energy flow in lakes and triggering a “rewiring” of food webs.
Dr. Timothy Bartley , study lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the U of G's Department of Integrative Biology , spoke to EM about the work .
“I got started on this when I first began graduate school and joined an ongoing project, which was a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ,” explains Dr. Bartley.Read More
