Details

Wading rods are used with instruments that measure water flow rates and discharge in shallow rivers and streams. In fact, many popular flow meters require a wading rod to operate properly. Some of these include the SonTek FlowTracker, Marsh McBirney Flo-Mate, OTT MF pro, Type AA, and pygmy current meters.

Two versions of the wading rod are available - one with English units for measuring depth and another with metric units. The English rod is marked in feet and tenths of feet. It may be ordered in 4', 6', 8', and 10' long models. The metric rod is marked in centimeters and has a length of 1.2m, 1.5m, 2m, or 3m.

Water depth can be determined simply by looking at the graduated markings on the wading rod. The anodized aluminum handle incorporates a scale to indicate the correct position of the flow meter at the 0.2, 0.6, and 0.8 depth settings. By simply pressing a button, you can properly position your flow probe to raise or lower it to the correct depth. There is no need to remove the flow meter from the water to set it to the correct setting.

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Heron dipper-Tough Is Ready For Harsh Deployments

For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.
