Heron dipperLog tapNtell Surface Mount Display
- Display is permanently attached to the well
- User-replaceable batteries do not drain the loggers of power and last up to 5 years
- Continuous record of water level rise and fall

|Usually ships in 3-5 days|
Heron's tapNtell display is best suited to monitor water levels during earth works construction, mining operations, irrigation wells, pore water pressure monitoring in piezometers, or just to keep a watchful eye on a domestic well. The tapNtell provides real-time temperature and water level data, accounting for the rise and fall of the water as it happens below. This data is conveniently presented in numerical value on the display.
Housed in a NEMA IP68 casing, the tapNtell is permanently secured at the top of a well that hosts a direct-read cable installation. This is available for all dipperLog water level loggers that are deployed with a reel or in a well head readout option.

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
Enormous amounts of excess nitrogen hit water bodies all over the globe, including the U.S., due to runoff from agricultural and other human activities. This nitrogen can cause dead zones and harmful algal growth. Before it reaches the ocean, microbes can process and remove some of it from stream sediments, connected aquifers and tidal freshwater zones. Thanks to this process, coasts can have a decreased likelihood of harmful algal blooms.
Keeping coastal waters clean is important for many reasons, including the fact that about 60% of the U.S. population lives on coasts. But despite the importance of these nitrogen processes, researchers have not fully investigated how they work.Read More
