The GL500-2-1 Data Logger features two analog channels and one pulse channel for recording data. The data logger records over 81,000 readings and has four unique recording options: fast (10 samples per second), programmable interval (1 second to multiple years), logarithmic, and exception. Start and stop alarm times can be programmed to synchronize multiple loggers, delay sampling until a preset time, or limit the number of recordings during a day. The GL500U-2-1 USB model is great for direct connection to a laptop or desktop PC.

The GL500-2-1 can monitor two 4-20mA sensors and features a scalable digital input that accepts switch closure signals and pulses from various external devices. The logger provides switched power to the sensors based on the programmable sample interval and sensor warm up time settings. Two- and three-wire sensors can be quickly connected to the datalogger’s internal terminal strip and calibrated via the included Global Logger II software.

The GL500-2-1 includes Global Logger II Windows software, which allow for easy setup, calibration, upload, and transfer to a spreadsheet program. NOTE: 64 bit operating systems are not currently supported.

Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Networks at the Heart of Citizen Science Movement

Lately, citizen science initiatives have been getting noticed by laypeople and mainstream media outlets. As everyday people become aware of ways they can get involved in actual scientific research, more of them are doing so—especially teachers and parents working with children. But this citizen science wave isn't actually a new thing. It has been growing outward from its core in volunteer water quality monitoring networks for years. Around the country, volunteers have been quietly monitoring the water quality in lakes, streams, rivers, marshes, and other surface waterways for decades. These highly successful programs have been supporting better water quality in communities across America, and in doing so have also formed the heart of the modern citizen science movement.

US Steel Dumping Chromium: Citizens Fighting for Lake Michigan, and Drinkable Water

If you remember the movie “Erin Brockovich,†you are already familiar with hexavalent chromium, a toxic substance that was contaminating the drinking water of people in California in the movie ( and in real life ). Although on the silver screen there was a very satisfying Hollywood resolution to the problem, there has not yet been such a happy ending in real life. The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

Monitoring the Mississippi: Wild Celery, Redhorse and More

The Upper Mississippi stretches from headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, all the way to Cairo, Illinois, about 1,250 miles. It includes picturesque wilderness areas complete with waterfalls, limestone bluffs and expansive valleys. It has attracted many campers, hikers, fishing enthusiasts and people seeking to launch their favorite boats or canoes. It has also been a haven for environmental researchers. Since 2016, Jeff Houser is the Science Director for the Long Term Resource Monitoring element (LTRM) of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program (UMRR).  Previously, he led the LTRM water quality component from 2003 until 2016.
