Heron SKINNY DIPPER Water Level Meters

Overview
The Heron SKINNY DIPPER is A specialized unit designed for narrow tubes and piezometers. The SKINNY DIPPER will signal water with a bright LED light and solid buzzer tone, allowing the user to make water level measurements accurate to 1/100th ft or to each millimeter. When contact is made with water, the SKINNY DIPPER signals the water shorts the probe tip and body to complete a circuit. There is no on/off switch--the switch is the water.

Tape Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER uses a high-strength Polyethylene tape, the diameter of which is a narrow 1⁄4”. The flexible tape winds smoothly onto the tough Nylon reel. Inside the tape are embedded two stainless steel conductors, which carry the signal from the probe to the electronic module. The SKINNY DIPPER tape is marked to engineering scale: Feet and tenths with markings every 1/100ft.

Electronic Module Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER includes a fully potted, fully field removable electronic module. The super bright red LED and buzzer are housed inside this water-tight module. The sensitivity dial on the SKINNY DIPPER allows false signals from cascading water to be tuned out, enabling the most accurate readings possible. The electronic circuit converts the DC battery current to an alternating current; this prevents corrosion and mineral build-up on the probe. The SKINNY DIPPER works on one 9-volt battery in an easy-access battery drawer mounted on the front of the module.

Probe Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER comes with a weighted, slim line 1/4” (0.635cm) diameter probe. The narrow diameter of the probe makes the SKINNY DIPPER an ideal water level indicator for narrow tubes and direct push equipment.

Reel Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER is a well-balanced unit. The stand-alone, sturdy steel frame is coated in Polyurethane for durability. The vinyl-coated carry handle is ergonomically designed for comfort and easier rewinding. The reel flanges and center hub are molded from high-strength Nylon turning on a stainless steel axle, allowing the smooth running of tape up and down the well or borehole. The third hand well casing hanger and tape guide are standard features on all Heron water level indicators.

PME miniDOT Logger: Plunge into Data

The PME miniDOT Logger is a compact data logger that measures dissolved oxygen (DO) and temperature down to 100 meters in depth. The unit can also endure low water temperatures and is durable underneath an ice layer, which is excellent for gathering essential winter water quality data that is lacking from using less robust equipment. The high depth rating and ability to withstand frigid temperatures make the PME a reliable device that is deployable in dramatically different environments, such as a monitoring well, an inland lake or an underwater cave. The logger itself features an optical DO sensor, temperature sensor, two AA lithium batteries and a micro SD memory card.

The Water of Life: How Understanding Natural Hydrologic Processes in Aquatic Ecosystems Can Lead to a Sustainable Future

From watersheds that provide drinking water, the rain that nourishes plants, to the streams and rivers that help aquatic ecosystems flourish, water is an ever-present and ever-essential part of life. For those like Durelle Scott, a professor of Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech University, understanding the importance of these natural systems was always a part of life. The desire to preserve the nation's aquatic resources stems from a childhood spent exploring the lakes and streams that surrounded him growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Now, as a teacher and a researcher, Scott makes it a priority to ensure that people now and in the future appreciate the enormous impact that aquatic ecosystems have on their lives. “I would say that water connects us all.

Lufft WS800: Introducing A Station that Can Weather the Storm

The Lufft WS800 Multi-Parameter Weather Station measures a full suite of atmospheric parameters that provides all-encompassing data on the local environment, including a one-of-a-kind lightning detector. This compact, cost-effective sensor simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure, precipitation, solar radiation, lightning, and wind with an integrated electronic compass. An internal fan and heater reduce the effects of external influences for accurate measurements during long-term deployments. The sensor can be easily mounted on a 2-inch diameter pipe above any local obstructions with the included bracket mount, U-bolts, and 10-meter cable.  Settings for the unit can be adjusted using the latest UMB-ConfigTool.
