Wind induced effects are one of the main sources of error when measuring barometric pressure. Variations due to strong and gusty wind can be overcome by using a static pressure head to filter out the effect of dynamic pressure.

The Vaisala SPH20 Heated 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 Static Pressure Head SPH10 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. Th e 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.

Restoring Native Brook Trout in North Carolina

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission ’s Inland Fisheries Division has been working to restore brook trout in the state. Coldwater research coordinator Jacob Rash, who works with the brook trout team technicians on this project, spoke to EM about the work. “In North Carolina, brook trout are our only native trout species,” explains Mr. Rash. “With that come biological and ecological considerations as well as cultural importance. A lot of folks here grew up fishing for brook trout with their relatives, so it's an important species that we work to try to conserve. We've done quite a bit of work to figure out where those brook trout populations are and what they are, in terms of genetics.

Robotic Fish May Reduce Live Fish Testing Near Hydroelectric Plants

Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates. Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing. EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.

Mobile HAB Lab, Citizen Scientists Building Awareness

News stories about dogs getting sick from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes have caused worry among members of the public this summer more than once. But Regional Science Consortium (RSC) Executive Director Dr. Jeanette Schnars and a dedicated team are bringing awareness about HABs to the public with the Mobile HAB Lab. “We just launched the HAB Citizen Scientists program this year,” explains Dr. Schnars. “It helps us work with people, especially people who spend time at marinas frequently, that are out there all season long.” The season for boaters at Presque Isle, where RSC is located, starts in mid-May and usually continues through the beginning or middle of October.
