The Zebra-Tech Measuring Board is a tough portable battery powered device that is designed to take measurements of objects and organisms in harsh environments. The measurements are logged internally and then downloaded to a mobile device using the Zebra-Tech app. The measurement can also be transmitted wirelessly to the Zebra-Tech Deck Logger for logging in real time.
The Measuring Board has been specifically designed to operate in wet and muddy conditions. It is ideal for field measurements of shellfish, fish and other organisms. A range of user select operating modes are available which enables a variety of measurement methods. For example; logging 2 distinct species, or making length and width measurements.
- Measurement Range: 0-230mm
- Accuracy: +/-1mm
- Resolution: 0.1mm
- Logger Battery Life: Dependent on use - approximately 1 year. User replaceable.
- Button Battery Life: In excess of 5 years. Not user replaceable.
- Data Storage Capacity: 10,000 single measurements
- Wireless Data Offload: Bluetooth v2.0 Android, using Zebra-Tech app
- Weight: 2.9kg

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
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.Read More
