The Airmar EchoRange SS510 Smart Sensor is a digital depth sonar for bridge scour monitoring, sediment transfer studies, and much more. Pairing the compact sensor with a computer or data logger provides a low-cost, portable hydrographic survey system. The EchoRange can also be fixed to a bridge abutment or pillar for unattended monitoring of scour conditions.

The sensor digitally processes depth and water temperature signals to communicate data via NMEA 0183 protocol. Using NMEA 0183, the sensor easily interfaces with computers or data collection platforms with a data output rate up to 10 times per second. The EchoRange is constructed with a robust stainless steel housing and has a measurement range from 0.4m to 200m with 0.01m resolution.

Notable Specifications:
  • Depth Reading Range: 0.4m to 200m
  • Depth Resolution: 0.01m
  • Depth Precision: 0.25% at full range
  • Frequency: 200 kHz
  • Beam Angle:

Real-Time Bridge Scour Tracked In Western Colorado

Editor’s Note: Any use of trade, firm, or product names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government. When we drive over bridges, we probably don’t think too much about the water body that we’re crossing. After all, the only thing we see are the cars in front of us and the asphalt beneath our tires. But there is something incredibly important occurring just under the water’s surface: bridge scour. All over the United States, government agencies keep an eye on bridge scour because of the damaging impacts it can have if left to fester. Too much erosion around piers supporting bridges can threaten bridge collapse and endanger driver safety. One of the agencies that keeps tabs on bridge scour is the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Sonar Altimeter Data Help In Fly Ash Pond Dewatering Project

Fly ash ponds can be dangerous to surrounding soils and waterways if they’re not constructed correctly . But even if they’re built with linings of clay soils or membranes, there is still need to manage their functions to ensure that what they hold -- byproducts of coal burning -- stays put. Experts at Los Alamos Technical Associates (LATA) have some experience with that. They recently helped manage the water levels in a fly ash pond near a coal-burning power plant in Kentucky. The project involved using a Tritech Micron EchoSounder DST Precision Sonar Altimeter to keep water levels in the fly ash pond high enough to ensure that pumps sending water out to nearby streams didn’t transport any sludge. “We were doing a dewatering job,” said Tim Hoehnke, project manager at LATA.

ESPniagara Tracks Algal Toxins In Lake Erie, Protects Drinking Water

It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.
