Details

The NexSens CB-450 Data Buoy is designed for deployment in lakes, rivers, coastal waters, harbors, estuaries and other freshwater or marine environments. The floating platform supports both topside and subsurface environmental monitoring sensors including weather stations, wave sensors, thermistor strings, multi-parameter sondes, Doppler current profilers and other monitoring instruments.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A topside 20” tall stainless steel tower includes three 10-watt 12VDC unbreakable solar panels, and a center 10” ID x 19.5” tall instrument well accommodates batteries, data loggers, sensors, and more. Three 4” pass-through holes with female NPT bottom threads allow for quick connection of instrument deployment pipes and custom sensor mounts. The stainless steel frame supports both single point and multi-point moorings.

The CB-450 Data Buoy is optimized for use with NexSens data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include Wi-Fi, spread spectrum radio, cellular and Iridium satellite. Compatible digital and analog sensor interfaces include RS-232, RS-485, SDI-12, VDC, mA, and pulse count. The top of the instrument well includes 8 pass-through ports for power and sensor interface. Each port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments In Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Lake Data Buoy Tackles Understudied Champlain

Since the 1990s, manual sampling trips on Lake Champlain have gathered data on its dynamics every few weeks. But the measurements they’ve gleaned are sparse when you consider faster-paced changes that the lake could see in a future of predicted climate upheaval. To help fill that gap and meet a host of other needs, scientists at the State University of New York (SUNY) -- Plattsburgh have deployed a new lake data buoy on the water body. It is only the second such monitoring platform launched in Lake Champlain, after another that logs in Missisquoi Bay. The new cellular data buoy, sitting not far from Valcour Island, is providing previously unavailable data on the lake in real time.
