The Well Watch Solar Power Kit offers a solution to any of our users who choose to operate off the grid, need to monitor in remote locations or don't have easily accessible AC power.
The Well Watch Solar Power Kit offers a solution to any of our users who choose to operate off the grid, need to monitor in remote locations or don't have easily accessible AC power. The system works best with 6 hours of peak sun per day but has enough reserve to operate the Well Watch on continuous logging for over a week with no sun. The log rate can be changed to lengthen the reserve time to last through a few weeks of cloudy weather.
The Solar Power Kit is compact and easily pole mounted with the included mounting bracket system. The enclosures are sealed and weatherproof. For added security they can accept a padlock or tamper seal.
Each kit includes: Solar panel, Die cast enclosure, pole/wall mounting kit with mounting plate, Cable assembly to connect battery to controller, Battery charging controller, 12V battery and Outdoor rated cable assembly to connect solar panel to controller.

In her 30th anniversary article about the Chesapeake Bay (Maryland) NERR, Jenn Raulin of the University of Maryland, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, had this to say about the NERR: â€œCBNERR-MD is one of twenty-nine Research Reserves across the Country and along with just a handful of other Reserves is comprised of multiple sites." Former Deputy Secretary Frank Dawson who was acting manager of CBNERR-MD at the time of designation provides some insight, "The vision of the Reserve program in Maryland was to have multiple components that would reflect the diversity of the estuarine systems of the Chesapeake Bay, allow us to monitor change, research pressing issues, and provide opportunities for hands-on educational experiences.Read More
Most of us are aware that the oceans of the world play a tremendously important role in both the regulation of the global climate and the uptake of atmospheric carbon. However, one might be forgiven for being less aware of the amazing complexity of the meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the world's oceans. Scientists around the world are still learning about these drivers of our global climate system. The AMOC, that portion of the MOC in the Atlantic, is critical to average climate worldwide. Characterized by fluctuations from north to south and back again, warmer waters move northward on the globe, allowing deeper, colder waters to circulate toward more central areas.Read More
Until recently, it's been difficult for scientists to monitor, inventory, and study deep water fishes. Yet these species are critical to understanding threats posed by climate change, fishing pressure, and pollution, among other factors impacting marine life. Now, teams are using newer technologies to access and document fish abundance and diversity among deeper reef settings. Tiffany Sih , a PhD candidate from James Cook University, has used Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) with lights to sample deeper habitats (54â€“260â€‰m), in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Australia. Sih corresponded with EM about her recent work , the first study of its kind looking deeper than 100m, and what inspired her to take the deeper dive.Read More
