The Airmar EchoRange SS510 Smart Sensor is a digital depth sonar for bridge scour monitoring, sediment transfer studies, and much more. Pairing the compact sensor with a computer or data logger provides a low-cost, portable hydrographic survey system. The EchoRange can also be fixed to a bridge abutment or pillar for unattended monitoring of scour conditions.

The sensor digitally processes depth and water temperature signals to communicate data via NMEA 0183 protocol. Using NMEA 0183, the sensor easily interfaces with computers or data collection platforms with a data output rate up to 10 times per second. The EchoRange is constructed with a robust stainless steel housing and has a measurement range from 0.4m to 200m with 0.01m resolution.

  • Depth Reading Range: 0.4m to 200m
  • Depth Resolution: 0.01m
  • Depth Precision: 0.25% at full range
  • Frequency: 200 kHz
  • Beam Angle:
  • Temperature Sensor Accuracy: +/-0.05° C
  • Temperature Resolution: 0.09° C
  • Supply Voltage: 9 VDC to 40 VDC
  • Average Current Draw: 150mA @ 13.6V
  • Power & Data Cable: C304, 4 twisted shielded pairs, 20m
  • NMEA0183 Baud Rate: 4,800

Real-Time Bridge Scour Tracked In Western Colorado

Editor’s Note: Any use of trade, firm, or product names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government. When we drive over bridges, we probably don’t think too much about the water body that we’re crossing. After all, the only thing we see are the cars in front of us and the asphalt beneath our tires. But there is something incredibly important occurring just under the water’s surface: bridge scour. All over the United States, government agencies keep an eye on bridge scour because of the damaging impacts it can have if left to fester. Too much erosion around piers supporting bridges can threaten bridge collapse and endanger driver safety. One of the agencies that keeps tabs on bridge scour is the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Sonar Altimeter Data Help In Fly Ash Pond Dewatering Project

Fly ash ponds can be dangerous to surrounding soils and waterways if they’re not constructed correctly . But even if they’re built with linings of clay soils or membranes, there is still need to manage their functions to ensure that what they hold -- byproducts of coal burning -- stays put. Experts at Los Alamos Technical Associates (LATA) have some experience with that. They recently helped manage the water levels in a fly ash pond near a coal-burning power plant in Kentucky. The project involved using a Tritech Micron EchoSounder DST Precision Sonar Altimeter to keep water levels in the fly ash pond high enough to ensure that pumps sending water out to nearby streams didn’t transport any sludge.

Wildfire smoke alters a lake's ecology from the top to the bottom of the food chain

Wildfires have been big news the last couple of years. Australia’s wildfires in 2019 and 2020 made headlines around the world. The American west has had record-breaking burns in recent years, blanketing cities in dangerous amounts of smoke and sending haze across the continent to the east coast. For smoke's clearly apparent effects in the sky, new research finds it changed the ecology of Castle Lake, a freshwater lake in California, in 2018. “There are some studies that have analyzed the effect of human health in respiration with the smoke of wildfire,” said Facundo Scordo, a postdoctoral researcher at the Global Water Center of the University of Nevada—Reno.
