The Vaisala SPH10 Static Pressure Head Series SPH10/20 are designed to minimize the errors caused by wind. The wind tunnel tested structure is both horizontally and vertically symmetrical. This design ensures reliable barometric pressure measurements in all weather.
Vaisala's static pressure heads are available in two models the Vaisala SPH10 Static Pressure Head is a basic version, and the Vaisala Static Pressure Head SPH20 is a heated version
for reliable operation in snowy and icy conditions. The warmed SPH20 contains a thermostat that switches on the warming power at temperatures, where the risk of icing may occur.
Composed of ultraviolet stabilized PC plastics and off shore aluminum, the SPH10/20 static pressure heads are durable and weather resistant. The SPH10/20 protects against rain and condensed water, thus preventing capillary condensation of a water column in the pressure channel which results in pressure error. The drain holes in the lower plate allow rain and water to flow out. The static pressure heads have internal netting which prevents insects and debris from blocking the pressure channel.
The SPH10/20 static pressure heads are easy to install and disassemble, service and clean even at the installation site. Vaisala BAROCAP Digital Barometer PTB210 can be installed directly on top of the SPH10/20 static pressure heads. Other barometers can be connected to the heads with pressure tubing.

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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
