Details

The PT-500 vented water level sensor is designed for use in a wide variety of environmental monitoring applications. The sensor is ideally suited for measuring water level in weirs, flumes, small to large streams, ponds, lakes, irrigation channels, and groundwater wells. The sensor is installed in a fixed location below the minimum expected water level, and a cable containing the sensor signals and vent tube is connected to a data logger mounted above flood stage.

The PT-500 measures the combined pressure exerted on it by the atmosphere and the head of water above it. A vent tube in the cable automatically corrects for changes in barometric pressure, and measured values are mathematically compensated for all linearity and temperature errors. With +/-0.1% Full Scale accuracy, the PT-500 provides high performance and accuracy over a wide range of operating conditions. The housing is constructed with laser welded 316L stainless steel.

The PT-500-UW features a plug-and-play interface to NexSens X2/G2 data loggers via the installed UW connector. The thread-in connector screws into the logger to reduce setup complexity and reduce the chance for errors. The specially designed UW connector features a field wireable design that provides the ability to cut and re-wire the cable to a specific length on-site. The cable is vented in the UW connector using a Gortex vent located on the side of the body.

Meet The Stream Team: MVUUF Citizen Scientists Keep A Watchful Eye on Dayton’s Wolf Creek

Named for wolves that were once spotted in the area during the pioneer era, Wolf Creek of Dayton, Ohio is a waterway nearly 20 miles long, a southeast flowing tributary of the Great Miami River. Wolf Creek is one of the “five rivers” referred to in the name of Five Rivers MetroParks- - Dayton, Ohio’s premier park system. Five Rivers MetroParks was founded in 1963 with the goal of preserving green space for future generations. The “five rivers” in its name refer to the Miami River, Stillwater River, Mad River, Twin Creek and Wolf Creek which run through the region. The area has many citizen scientist volunteers that help assess water quality in selected areas.

No Evidence of Natural Gas From Fracking In Ohio Drinking Water

A recent study of Appalachian Ohio drinking water from private wells found no evidence of natural gas contamination from “fracking” (drilling for oil and gas) despite concerns about the practice. University of Cincinnati geologists investigated drinking water in Carroll, Harrison, and Stark counties, a rural area in the northeast portion of the state, where private underground wells are the only source of drinking water for many residents. Associate professor of geology Amy Townsend-Small described the time-series study, which is the first to measure sources and concentrations of methane in the fracking region of Ohio, to EM.

Sedimentation Research Helps Determine Effects of Seabed Mining

Scientists from New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, NIWA , are engaging in sedimentation research to help determine the effects of seabed mining and fishing on the environment. This work represents some of the most challenging underwater research ever undertaken by the NIWA team. The need for the work arises from the controversy surrounding proposed seabed ventures—each of which was met with serious opposition based on presumed environmental effects such as drifting sediment plumes. In an effort to determine the full environmental impacts of such seabed activities, the NIWA team has undertaken an unusual project deploying high-tech instruments on the ocean floor. NIWA principal scientist and voyage leader Dr.
