Details

Wind induced effects are one of the main sources of error when measuring barometric pressure. Variations due to strong and gusty wind can be overcome by using a static pressure head to filter out the effect of dynamic pressure.

The Vaisala SPH20 Heated Static Pressure Head Series SPH10/20 are designed to minimize the errors caused by wind. The wind tunnel tested structure is both horizontally and vertically symmetrical. This design ensures reliable barometric pressure measurements in all weather.

Vaisala's static pressure heads are available in two models the Vaisala Static Pressure Head SPH10 is a basic version, and the Vaisala Static Pressure Head SPH20 is a heated version
for reliable operation in snowy and icy conditions. The warmed SPH20 contains a thermostat that switches on the warming power at temperatures, where the risk of icing may occur.

Composed of ultraviolet stabilized PC plastics and off shore aluminum, the SPH10/20 static pressure heads are durable and weather resistant. The SPH10/20 protects against rain and condensed water, thus preventing capillary condensation of a water column in the pressure channel which results in pressure error. Th e drain holes in the lower plate allow rain and water to flow out. The static pressure heads have internal netting which prevents insects and debris from blocking the pressure channel.

The SPH10/20 static pressure heads are easy to install and disassemble, service and clean even at the installation site. Vaisala BAROCAP Digital Barometer PTB210 can be installed directly on top of the SPH10/20 static pressure heads. Other barometers can be connected to the heads with pressure tubing.

Arsenic in Drinking Water: A Tale of Public and Private Water Sources, and Regulation

In recent months, a maelstrom of change has been rippling through many federal agencies, particularly those tasked with regulations connected to environmental science . Naturally, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is no exception, and may be one of the agencies seeing the most change . The idea in play appears to be the deregulation is going to achieve better outcomes for America and for citizens. However, recent research on arsenic in drinking water suggests otherwise, providing a crystalline example of how vitally important the work and regulations of the EPA really are.

Imperial County Residents Help Tackle Air Monitoring

Residents from Imperial County, California are benefitting from a new air quality monitoring network of low-cost environmental sensors that provide real-time pollution data. The county is subject to many air pollution sources such as field burning, unpaved roads, several industrial facilities and its close proximity to the Salton Sea. The City of El Centro, California, which is located in the county, has the fifth-worst air quality in the United States, according to a study by the American Lung Association. While there are several different types of air pollution, particulate matter (PM) is a main concern in Imperial County. PM is a mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.
