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.

Environmental DNA from Waterways Could Be a New Tool in Monitoring Feral Pigs

When pigs get out of their pens, they can really tear up a landscape. Five million pigs in 39 states can tear up a lot of landscape. “They’re one of the top 100 invasive species in the world. Anywhere wild pigs are not natural and they show up, they do a lot of damage to other species,” said Dwayne Etter, a research specialist with Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and a part of a research team that tested a new feral swine monitoring technique that uses environmental DNA. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is genetic material organisms lose in the environment. If a pig crosses a creek or defecates in it, a researcher, in theory, should be able to pull that DNA out of the water further downstream.

Birds, Fish and Shifting Sediment; How Lake Erie Buoys Measure It All

Since its population bottomed out, the federally-endangered Piping Plover in the Great Lakes has made a comeback for the ages.  A population that once measured approximately 17 pairs and rebounded, hitting 76 pairs in 2017. The same year that count was made, the plovers had also returned to Gull Point, a nesting location that hadn’t been used in more than 60 years.   In an effort to understand some of the conditions that have allowed this species to return to its habitat, researchers have directed their attention toward a curious instrument for help. A buoy that floats off the coast of Presque Isle State Park , near where Gull Point is located.

Much remains unknown about sharks. The Cal State Shark Lab wants to change that

Thirty years ago, white shark sightings near California’s beaches almost never happened. For Chris Lowe, who was a graduate student at California State University’s Shark Lab at the time, spying a dorsal fin from one of the ocean’s top predators was very rare. Prior to the mid-90’s, an expansive commercial fishing operation and the loss of marine animals decimated white shark populations. If their food wasn’t being hunted, sharks were getting caught in gill nets. At that point, they would be killed anyways before getting brought to the market to be sold. Then in 1994, California residents approved propositions that banned gillnets in state waters and enacted protections for the white shark.
