A built-in data logger can record up to 13,000 time stamped readings along with the well ID, temperature, and other associated measurements. The logger can be set to take measurements automatically at intervals between 1 and 60 minutes, or manually by pressing the log button on the keypad. The recorded data can be reviewed on the screen or downloaded to a computer for analysis using the serial RS-232 port or the included USB cable. Stored data is formatted in simple Windows-compatible text files sorted by well ID. Data can be easily copied from the instrument onto the computer and opened with almost any common program such as Word, Excel, or Notepad.
Other features of the Well Sounder 2010 PRO includes a power save mode which puts the unit to sleep between measurements when logging and turns the power off after a selected period of inactivity. If there are known defects in the well such as a rock fissure, simply set the measurement range minimum and maximum to ignore the interference. The multi-purpose bi-directional serial port can also be used to transmit data in real-time to a remote readout or logging device.

The sonic water level meter unit and probe are resistant to rain and splashing but not saturation or submersion. They will be damaged if submerged.
The maximum range is 2000 feet. On a 6" well with tight clean casing all the way down and little to no obstructions along the way, the maximum depth can be achieved. On uncased wells drilled through porous stone or with irregular walls, or any obstructions such as spacer rings or couplings, the range will be reduced.
When the log memory is full, the sounder stops recording new data and preserves the first data points. The Well Sounder 2010P will continue to record data in its extended data memory up to 2GB and be accessible with the USB connection.
Hand dug wells are often fairly large and irregular, which may cause multiple or weak sound reflections. However, in any difficult to measure well, a small tube can be installed specifically for measurement. A 3/4" PE pipe can be used for up to 1000 feet provided splicers do not restrict the ID.
The Eno Scientific Well Sounder was designed to work on a closed well. A simple piece of rigid card board or plastic held against the opening is enough to meet this requirement. In many cases it will work on the open well but may be off by a couple feet.
Yes, the sonic water level meter can be used with six AA alkaline batteries or with a 6.5-12 VDC external power source. If using an external source, the power must not exceed 16 VDC.

Measuring the distance to the water’s surface in a well can be difficult, especially when the well is deep and full of obstacles that can block and entangle mechanical measuring tools.
But the Eno Scientific Well Sounder 2010 Pro gets around those obstacles with the power of sound, eliminating the need for any mechanical measuring. The device sends low-frequency sound waves down a well until they hit liquid.
“The sound can go around all the wiring and pipes and stabilizers within the well and give a measurement within a second,” said Rachel Bean, Eno Scientific sales manager.
The Well Sounder’s probe emits broadcasts low-frequency sound waves from the top of a well. The waves return in about one second per 500 feet.Read More
Climate change-driven volatility is changing lakes at the base of their food webs.
That’s one way to interpret new research that documented such a change in Muskegon Lake on the coast of Lake Michigan. Researchers found that, in one particularly rainy and cool year, normal phytoplankton diversity and patterns were cast aside. Instead, one group of algae dominated the entire year, offering a glimpse into the kinds of surprising changes that could happen in the future.
“Phytoplankton are a very responsive group of organisms,” said Jasmine Mancuso, whose research detailing the change in the lake was published in October in Journal of Great Lakes Research .Read More
While researchers all over the globe have been studying greenhouse gases, there are still some areas in the field that have not received as much attention as they deserve. Emily Stanley, professor in the department of integrative biology at the University of Wisconsin and principal investigator for North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research (NTL-LTER), has spent a significant part of her career exploring a few of them.
“Clearly we have a problem with greenhouse gases. What people may not realize is that streams and lakes are hotspots of global methane and CO2. Understanding greenhouse gas dynamics in these systems is important because they are vents all over the world and they are not insignificant,” said Stanley.Read More
