Heron barLog Barometric Pressure Logger
- Can be with synchronized with multiple dipperLogs at the same site
- dipperLog program compensates with the barLog according to time and date matches
- Fully automated interaction
The Heron barLog barometric pressure logger is designed for long-term, automatic barometric pressure compensation with the Heron dipperLog. The barLog can be used in conjunction with multiple dipperLog water level loggers at the same site.
The fully automated operation ensures that there is no need for elevation correction or post processing of any data. The dipperLog program will coordinate the barLog pressure logger with matching dipperLogs at the same site and will compsenate according to the time and date matches.

For several decades, a wetland along the Twisp River in north-central Washington has been used as a re-regulating irrigation reservoir by a landowner looking to support their crops.
“Water was diverted from a small stream into the wetland, then pumped out of the wetland to irrigate about 35 acres of hay and pasture,” said Brian Fisher, ecologist and project manager at the Methow Salmon Recovery Foundation. “The irrigation system was diverting the majority of the stream during low flows, and was creating barriers that blocked fish migration for part of the year.”
Fisher and others at the foundation worked with the landowner to change things up and use water from a well instead of continuing to divert surface water.Read More
The value of multi-lake studies is well understood by international organizations like the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and the scientists who work tirelessly to provide data to the larger network. Rebecca North, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia , is one of many researchers involved in multi-lake research initiatives and conducting research locally in her home state.
Having been born and raised on the shore of Lake Ontario, North grew up in a community that revolved around water. She also saw firsthand one of the worst water quality bodies of the world, the Bay of Quinte, decline throughout her lifetime.Read More
It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.
From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.Read More
