Monitoring Devices Protect Multi-Million Dollar Research Projects
Since the 1960s, scientists have been using the zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model organism for studying human genetics and disease. While mice and rats have been common choices for research in the past, the zebrafish offers certain advantages over mammals when modeling human diseases. Zebrafish are transparent in the larval stages, allowing scientists to observe processes like tumor metastasis and blood development in bone marrow transplants. They can also produce hundreds of offspring per week and many thousands over their lifetimes.
Fawn Pond Bog Uses Remote Temperature Monitoring to Protect Valuable Cranberry Vines
Growing cranberries is a unique occupation. In fact, there are fewer than 1,000 cranberry growing operations in North America. For growers Jill and James Ward, who run the five-acre Fawn Pond Bog, maintaining healthy vines year-round is vital for keeping the business and their family afloat.
Sentinel System Monitors Conditions in Mobile NOAA Research Vehicle
The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Global Monitoring Division (GMD) is to acquire, evaluate and make publicly available accurate long-term records of atmospheric gases, aerosol particles, clouds, and surface radiation. They must provide these records in a manner that allows the causes and consequences of change to be understood.
