The Stevens HydraProbe soil moisture sensor is an in-situ soil probe that measures 21 different soil parameters simultaneously. The HydraProbe instantly calculates soil moisture, electrical conductivity, salinity, and temperature as well as supplying raw voltages and complex permittivity for research applications. A compact, rugged design with potted internal components makes the HydraProbe easy to deploy and leave in the soil for years with no maintenance.

The probe design is unique compared to other soil moisture probes because the electrical response of soils can be specified by two parameters - the dielectric constant and the conductivity. The dielectric constant is most indicative of water content, while the conductivity is strongly dependent on soil salinity. Unlike other capacitance type sensors, the HydraProbe measures both of these components simultaneously. The high frequency electrical measurements indicating the capacitive and conductive properties of soil are then directly related to the soil's moisture and salinity content, while a thermistor determines soil temperature.

The HydraProbe soil moisture sensor includes SDI-12 or RS-485 outputs for interfacing with external data loggers such as the NexSens X2. Sensor cables can be factory-connectorized with NexSens UW plug connectors for integration to an X2 data logger sensor port. Data retrieval options using the X2 include direct-connect, Wi-Fi, cellular, radio, and Iridium satellite telemetry.

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.
