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.

Buoys in the time of Covid: Delays to important information

In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl. Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.

Gar-Bage Fish No More. It’s Time to Respect Gar

Gar are a mean-looking fish, which along with their reputation as predators has earned them disregard and persecution for a long time. But that’s starting to change and it’s about time, says Solomon David, who’s watching with hope as gar are increasingly valued for their role in their ecosystems and as sport fish. “These attitudes are shifting, but there’s plenty of work to do,” said David, who is an assistant professor of biological sciences at Nicholls State University in Louisiana. While understanding of gar’s scientific and recreational value is increasing, gar still face the harmful effects of old beliefs and new challenges.

Hypoxic Conditions in Lake Erie Impact Yellow Perch Population

Yellow perch are a species central to the culture and economy surrounding Lake Erie. With the largest commercial fishery and a prolific sportfishing industry, Lake Erie's yellow perch are a treasured study subject for environmental scientists. Daily bag limits and other public wildlife regulations rely heavily on the work of scientists like Ann Marie Gorman, one of the Fisheries Biologists responsible for coordinating ODNR ’s Central Basin Bottom Trawl Survey.  The survey, ongoing since 1990, conducts seasonal assessments of the bottom fish community in Erie. It aims to index annual recruitment and catch-at-age of yellow perch.
