Details

The PT-500 vented water level sensor is designed for use in a wide variety of environmental monitoring applications. The sensor is ideally suited for measuring water level in weirs, flumes, small to large streams, ponds, lakes, irrigation channels, and groundwater wells. The sensor is installed in a fixed location below the minimum expected water level, and a cable containing the sensor signals and vent tube is connected to a data logger mounted above flood stage.

The PT-500 measures the combined pressure exerted on it by the atmosphere and the head of water above it. A vent tube in the cable automatically corrects for changes in barometric pressure, and measured values are mathematically compensated for all linearity and temperature errors. With +/-0.1% Full Scale accuracy, the PT-500 provides high performance and accuracy over a wide range of operating conditions. The housing is constructed with laser welded 316L stainless steel.

The PT-500-UW features a plug-and-play interface to NexSens X2/G2 data loggers via the installed UW connector. The thread-in connector screws into the logger to reduce setup complexity and reduce the chance for errors. The specially designed UW connector features a field wireable design that provides the ability to cut and re-wire the cable to a specific length on-site. The cable is vented in the UW connector using a Gortex vent located on the side of the body.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Nature's Water Quality Detectives Assisting Scientists

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.

Citizen Scientists Helping Protect Water Quality and Measure Impact of Climate Change

Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .

Marine Food Webs At Risk Thanks to Climate Change

Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.
