Global Water's WL400 Water Level Sensor provides highly accurate water level measurement for a wide variety of applications, including those in severe environments. The submersible pressure transducers have a dynamic temperature compensation system, enabling high accuracy measurements over a wide temperature range. The water level sensor is easily adapted to all dataloggers, telemetry, monitoring equipment, and displays.

Each of the water level sensors consist of a solid state submersible pressure transducer encapsulated in a stainless steel 13/16 inch diameter housing. The water level sensor has a molded waterproof cable and a two-wire 4-20mA output for connection to a monitoring device. A 25 ft cable is standard, and optional cable lengths are available up to 500 ft.

The Water Level Sensor's submersible pressure transducer is fully encapsulated with marine-grade epoxy so that moisture can never leak in or work its way down the vent tube to cause drift or level sensor failure. The sensor uses a unique, highly flexible silicon diaphragm to interface between water and the sensing element. This silicon diaphragm protects the water level sensor's electronics from moisture and provides each sensor with exceptional linearity and very low hysteresis.

Water level ranges of 0-3, 0-15, 0-30, 0-60, 0-120, and 0-250 feet are available. The 0-3 ft low-level range is ideal for measuring shallow flows or small water level changes like those encountered in sewers, storm drains, weirs, and flumes. The 0-3 ft water monitoring sensor accurately measures small changes in water, even when the water's depth is only a few inches deep.
Questions & Answers
Is this sensor difficult to maintain?
No, but standard care and calibration methods are suggested. The screen on the end of the sensor should be periodically checked for clogging from mud, sludge, and other debris. If it is fouled, wash the screen with clean water and/or scrub it gently with a toothbrush. Do not insert objects through the screen, as this may cause damage to the sensor. Global Water recommends verifying the sensor's calibration with a sounder or other measuring device once every 6 months

Current Monitoring after the Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse

On March 26th, according to The Baltimore Sun , a 984-foot, 112,000-ton Dali lost propulsion and collided with a support column of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, collapsing the structure. Soon after the event, search and rescue, salvage crews, and other emergency responders were mobilized after the collision. As salvage efforts progressed in early April, NOAA’s Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) responded to a request for real-time tidal currents data and deployed a current monitoring buoy—CURBY (Currents Real-time BuoY)—into the Patapsco River north of the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Soundscapes of the Solar Eclipse: Citizen Science Supporting National Research

On April 8, 2024, millions of people around the world had their eyes glued to the sky to witness a historic cosmic event. The total solar eclipse captured the headlines and the minds of many who became eager to gaze at the heavens as the sky went dark for a few minutes. However, not everyone used their sense of sight during the eclipse, some were listening to the sounds of the natural world around them as the light faded from above. The Eclipse Soundscape Project is a NASA-funded citizen science project that focuses on studying how the annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, and the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse impacted life on Earth.  The project revisits an initiative from the 1930s that showed animals and insects are affected by solar eclipses.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.
