Details

The SDL V2 Submersible Data Logger is a rugged, self-powered remote data logging system for deploying environmental sensors in lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters, sewers, and culverts without fear of accidental flooding. The system is configured with three sensor ports for connection to industry-standard digital interfaces including RS-485 and SDI-12. Additional sensor inputs are available through the use of adapters. Each sensor port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection. Unlike many data loggers, the SDL V2 is truly submersible. The housing and battery compartment are completely sealed and waterproof.

When it comes to field ruggedness, the NexSens SDL V2 is in a class of its own. The housing is constructed of impact-resistant PVC and includes two elastomer bumpers for long-term deployment in close-fitting pipes and buoy ports. Internal circuit boards and communication modules are shock mounted and all access ports incorporate redundant sealing. The SDL V2 withstands extreme wave action, drops, floods, periodic & long-term deployment underwater, and more. When fitted for wireless remote communication, the radio, cellular, and satellite antennas are also waterproof.

The SDL V2 can be powered autonomously by sixteen D-cell alkaline batteries. Optional solar power kits provide long-term continuous operation and solar charging. Common sensor connections include multi-parameter sondes, water quality sensors, temperature strings, Doppler velocity meters, water level sensors, and weather stations. Optional integrated cellular or satellite telemetry modules offer real-time remote communications via the WQData LIVE web datacenter. There, data is presented on a fully-featured and easy-to-use dashboard. Other features include automated reports, alarms, push notifications and much more.

Weeks Bay NERR offers glimpse into ancient estuaries along the northern Gulf of Mexico

Mike Shelton, natural resources planner for Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), has spent 17 years at the Reserve. The Reserve was founded in 1986 and is located in the Alabama and Florida coastal region. “It’s a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Places like this are why we live on the coast,” he enthuses. “There’s also a lot of history here. It’s one of the first areas settled by the Europeans after they arrived in America. The city of Pensacola was the second city built in the U.S.,” adds Scott Phipps, research coordinator for Weeks Bay NERR. Weeks Bay NERR monitoring follows the same System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) as the other 28 NERRs, which includes deploying data-gathering sondes throughout the Bay.

Reconstructing Past Ocean Temperatures with Samples of Antarctic Ice

Part of the secret to knowing just how much Earth's oceans have warmed as its climate has changed in the past—and might change in the future—might be locked in the ice of Antarctica. A research team has discovered a way to use noble gas ratios to calculate the average temperature of the oceans of our past. Geoscientist and study author Dr. Jeff Severinghaus and teammates from Scripps Oceanography and other institutions in Japan and Switzerland worked together on the tricky problem of measuring ocean temperatures of the past. Until now, the distribution of different water masses around the globe has made determining changes in the average temperature of the world's oceans nearly impossible.

Little Buoy, Big Waves

A pair of lonesome data buoys bobbing off Michigan’s storm-whipped Lake Superior shore were suddenly the stars of the state this fall when they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes. The buoys, near Granite Island and Munising, each recorded 28.8-foot significant wave heights during a storm that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage along the coast. The record wave height exceeded the previous 27.6-foot record set by a Michigan Tech buoy near Houghton, Mich., in 2012. To give some perspective on the rarity of these types of events, waves at the record-capturing buoys only climbed above 12 feet four times throughout 2015 and 2016.
