Overview
The SKINNY DIPPER water level indicator is used for measuring the depth of narrow water in wells, boreholes and standpipes. This specialized unit is 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. The SKINNY DIPPER signals when contact is made with water, 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 moulded 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.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institutes Wireless Plan to Connect to MARS

Engineers and scientists that specialize in aquatic measuring practices always meet extra costs on the path to deployment. Maybe it is the corrosive nature of the saltwater, or the unbearable pressure tools must be equipped to handle while lying on the ocean floor. For anyone interested in hooking up with the MARS (Monterey Accelerated Research System) Observatory , which rests dozens of miles off the California coastline, the costs extend further. They get so high that only well-funded universities and governmental agencies can afford to connect with the underwater power and data hub. Hoping to lower that cost, engineers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute ( MBARI ) constructed a wireless device called Deep-Sea Connect.

With Cameras and Artificial Intelligence, Fishing Vessels are Becoming Smarter

During an electronic monitoring conference in February, fisheries managers and fishermen watched a squiggly purple line meander across the screen. It was mapping the journey a tuna fish was taking, from being caught and landing across the deck of a fishing vessel. Leigh Habegger, executive director for Seafood Harvesters of America , a national commercial fishing group, said everyone in the crowd had their eyes glued to the screen. “It was fascinating, it was really cool,” she added.  The graphic was the manifestation of a machine-learning tool that was trained to follow where a fish ended up after it was caught.

Mercury and Lake Levels Rise and Fall Together around Great Lakes

Sometimes the scientific process makes for a great story. Sometimes, like when discovering the relationship between lake levels and mercury levels in fish, it brings a few stories into one. “It’s really two or three stories wrapped into one, and the wrapping was a bit of a surprise to us,” said Carl Watras, a research scientist at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. In January, Watras and a team of researchers published findings in Environmental Science & Technology Letters that related water levels in lakes to mercury levels in walleye and loons. From the Pacific Ocean to Mercury Levels in Wisconsin One of those stories is one of cross-continental influence.
