How should I sync my Hydro-Wiper with my sensor measurements?
The Hydro-Wiper timer starts 0.5 seconds after the power is switch on. To avoid affecting sensor measurements, start the Hydro-Wiper out of sequence. For example, if the sensor measurements are scheduled for every hour, start the Hydro-Wiper at 30 minutes past the hour.
Can I adjust the wiper brush pressure?
The brush is mounted to an adjustable arm that has been factory set and should not need adjustment. The Hydro-Wiper works by lightly sweeping across the optical window, it does not scrub. If it is necessary to adjust the pressure, loosen the lock nut at the end of the wiper arm an rotate the wiper arm in the desired direction. Tighten the lock nut after adjustment.
For decades, scientists have been fascinated by the color and clarity of water. Very high water clarity is extremely rare in nature. So it is was with some surprise that a team of scientists from the National Institute of Water and the Atmosphere in New Zealand recently discovered that Blue Lake, in Nelson Lakes National Park on the country’s South Island, is the visually clearest freshwater lake ever reported. Mark Gall, a scientist at NIWA, said colleague Rob Merrilees had seen Blue Lake and thought it could be comparable to Pupu Springs, another South Island lake that was the clearest reported freshwater at the time.Read More
Two autonomous underwater vehicles are drifting through Lake Ontario, monitoring a slew of environmental metrics, according to a release from New York Sea Grant. The high-tech equipment is recording data on fish productivity, food web changes and algae levels. Each AUV weighs 42 pounds, is six and a half feet long and has a slew of sensors, including side scan sonar and 10-beam Doppler. Mapping capability complements collected parameters like temperature, turbidity, pH and levels of oxygen and phosphorus, among others. The research is made possible through the Cooperative Science Monitoring Initiative between the US and Canada called for under the Clean Water Act of 1972.Read More
Wind probably isn’t the first thing that people think of when considering causes of poor water quality, but sediment disturbances caused by the combination of shallow waters and high winds are threatening the health of Iowa’s Storm Lake. Although Storm Lake looks picturesque from a distance, the resuspension of sediment is affecting water clarity and exposing harmful nutrients in the water. Led by Clayton Williams and John Downing, professors in Iowa State University’s Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology, a research team has begun monitoring the lake to determine the causes and potential solutions to the lake’s sediment issues.Read More
