Flexibility
The WXT530 is a series of weather instruments that provides six of the most important weather parameters, which are air pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction through various combinations. You can select the transmitter with the needed parameter(s) into your weather application, with a large variety of digital communication modes and wide range of voltages. There is a heated option available. Low power consumption enables solar panel applications. The Vaisala WXT530 Series focuses on maintenance-free operations in a cost effective manner.

Integration
The series offers analog input options for additional third party analog sensors. With the help of the built in analog to digital converters, you can turn the Weather Transmitter WXT530 into a small, cost effective weather parameter hub. Additional parameters include the solar radiation and external temperature sensor. Further, the analog mA output option for wind speed and direction enables wide variety of industrial applications. The WXT530 exceeds IEC60945 maritime standard.

Solid Performance
The WXT530 Series has a unique Vaisala solid state sensor technology. To measure wind the ultrasonic Vaisala WINDCAP Sensors are applied to determine horizontal wind speed and direction. Barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity measurements are combined in the PTU module using capacitive measurement for each parameter. This module is easy to change without any contact with the sensors. The precipitation measurement is based on the unique acoustic Vaisala RAINCAP Sensor without flooding, clogging, wetting, and evaporation losses.

Everglades Restoration: A Story of Wetlands and Water

The Everglades are famous as a popular tourist destination. In 2019, over one million people visited the famous national park that makes up their southern portion. They are also famous, though probably less so, for ongoing, large-scale restoration efforts aiming to restore some of the hydrology that earned the system the nickname the River of Grass. [bctt tweet="Restoring the River of Grass to something closer to its former state will provide timely relief for vital wetlands that support wildlife, industry and the 8 million people that utilize the Everglades for the fresh water they provide.

After 10 Years, Great Lakes Monitoring Program Still Adapting

The public knows much more about Great Lakes coastal wetlands than it did ten years ago.  In those ten years, the information gathered through the Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program has led to and supported dozens of advances in Great Lakes science while helping nail down the shifting nature of ecosystem health for a vital part of the Great Lakes system. “I probably get one or two requests for information a week,” Don Uzarski, director of the program, told Environmental Monitor. The program’s most recent semi-annual report lists 40 scientific publications using the collected data. In addition, the data has been used in even more restoration projects, graduate theses and presentations.

Fisheries Management Drives Fish Populations Recovery

You might be surprised to hear good news about the world’s oceans. The dominant narrative for years has been that the oceans’ sea life populations are on the brink of collapse. But, according to research Ray Hilborn published in January in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the ocean’s fisheries are bouncing back, provided that they’re well managed. “The bottom line is that if fisheries are managed they are sustainable,” Hilborn, a professor at the University of Washington’s school of aquatic and fisheries sciences, told Environmental Monitor. New evidence of recovery After two decades of recovering fish populations, many of the world’s fisheries are stable or recovering, Hilborn’s research shows.
