Questions & Answers
Do I need Renter's Insurance?
The customer is responsible for insurance coverage based on the replacement cost of the unit.
How late can I rent the RiverSurveyor with Same Day shipping?
The cutoff time for same day shipments on the RiverSurveyor is 12pm EST.
Will the rental kit allow me to feed in an independent (Trimble R10 or R7) RTK-GNSS NMEA string to the Sontek RiverSurveyor M9?
If the third-party GPS/GNSS can output at 1-10 Hz as well as output the NMEA sentences, GPGGA and GPVTG, then they will work with the RSM9. The Geneq SXBlue GNSS Receiver works with the RSM9 well.

Rounded pebbles give evidence of past flowing water on Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover has found pebbles that appear to have been rounded by streamflow, according to a release from University of California Davis. Experts say the finding represents the first on-site evidence of sustained flowing water on Mars. The rounded pebbles discovered are only known to form when transported through water over long distances. Their discovery supports theories that the red planet could once have supported life. The smooth rocks were found between the north rim of the planet’s Gale Crater and the base of Mount Sharp, a mountain inside the crater. Researchers say they chose Gale Crater for study because there was a sediment deposit there that typically requires water to form.

U. Delaware studying tidal flow, sediment movement in salt marshes

University of Delaware scientists are studying the impacts that rising sea levels might have on marsh ecosystems in the future, the University of Delaware has reported. Scientists predict that rising sea levels could convert marshes into intertidal flats. These conversions could drastically change land composition by stripping sediment from the land, which could alter water quality by exposing substantial quantities of sequestered carbon and pollutants. Researchers are monitoring the fluctuations of water flow and sediment concentrations in Delaware’s Brockonbridge Marsh.

Acoustic instruments help sort out a Western reservoir's sediment

The reservoir that helped turn Lewiston, Idaho, into into one of the country's most unlikely West Coast port cities is filling up with sediment. Federal environmental agencies are turning to an unlikely monitoring technology to better understand the sources of sediment upstream. The navigational structures built into the Lower Granite Dam, completed in 1974, opened Lewiston to oceangoing vessels traveling up the Snake River. At 465 river miles away from the Pacific, that made Lewiston the country's farthest-inland West Coast port. Since the dam was finished, around 75 million cubic yards of sediment have accumulated in the reservoir, according to Molly Wood, a surface water specialist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Idaho Water Science Center.
