  • Tech Tip: SeaFET/SeapHOx pH Pre-conditioning

    The SeaFET/SeapHOx must condition to the deployment environment for at least 48 hours before pH data is considered reliable. The Shallow SeaFET’s external pH sensor must be powered and exposed to the deployment site’s water for 2–5 days before obtaining quality data. You will often see the external pH gradually rise until it meets the internal reference pH within ~0.05 pH after ...

  • Case study - Buoy-based temperature profiling in the Bavarian Lakes

    In summertime a temperature stratification occurs in deep lakes – the surface water is warm, but deep down the water is cold.  This has considerable influence on the nutrient balance and the biological habitat in these lakes. Due to generally higher air temperatures induced by the climate change, both change and have effects on the life conditions of the ecosystems in the lakes. ...

  • How to identify the resolution & accuracy of a sensor

    When it comes to measuring things like slope stability, bridge sag and sway or the control of a high speed train, nothing is more important than precision. It’s always a microradian or micro g that can mean the difference between a normal day in the office and a nightmare. Resolution and accuracy are two specifications that are important to know for precision sensing, but what exactly is ...

  • Experimental study on the effect of temperature and flux conditions on moisture distribution in vadose zone soil

    Moisture distribution in vadose zone soil is the most important parameter for land productivity and vegetation status of ecological systems, and is sensitive to temperature variation. In this study, laboratory scale tests were conducted to determine the effect of temperature on variation in moisture distribution in covered and uncovered conditions. The results indicated that soil moisture from ...

  • Safe Landings Whatever the Weather: Lufft Sensors on Airports

    Pilots, air traffic controllers and airport operators do their best to make air travel safer and more efficient. Sometimes, however, flight security depends on external factors we can hardly influence. This especially refers to risky weather conditions: Strong winds, icy cold or strong precipitation can have serious consequences. On average, 23% of all aircraft accidents and 68% of canceled ...

  • Tech Tip: Deploying Sea-Bird CTD in Ice

    Large numbers of Sea-Bird conductivity instruments have been used in Arctic and Antarctic programs. Special accommodation to keep temperature, conductivity, oxygen, and optical sensors at or above 0° C is advised. Often, the CTD is brought inside protective doors between casts to achieve this. Conductivity Cell When freezing is possible, we ...

  • What became of the radio amateurs’ weather station in Ravensburg?

    In November 2015, the chairman of the German Radio Amateurs Club’s (DARC) local association in Ravensburg, Germany introduced himself and explained how we helped to realize one of their dreams by sponsoring a professional WS601-UMB weather sensor. In the following article he shows us how the station has ...
