Details

The SDL V2 Submersible Data Logger is a rugged, self-powered remote data logging system for deploying environmental sensors in lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters, sewers, and culverts without fear of accidental flooding. The system is configured with three sensor ports for connection to industry-standard digital interfaces including RS-485 and SDI-12. Additional sensor inputs are available through the use of adapters. Each sensor port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection. Unlike many data loggers, the SDL V2 is truly submersible. The housing and battery compartment are completely sealed and waterproof.

When it comes to field ruggedness, the NexSens SDL V2 is in a class of its own. The housing is constructed of impact-resistant PVC and includes two elastomer bumpers for long-term deployment in close-fitting pipes and buoy ports. Internal circuit boards and communication modules are shock mounted and all access ports incorporate redundant sealing. The SDL V2 withstands extreme wave action, drops, floods, periodic & long-term deployment underwater, and more. When fitted for wireless remote communication, the radio, cellular, and satellite antennas are also waterproof.

The SDL V2 can be powered autonomously by sixteen D-cell alkaline batteries. Optional solar power kits provide long-term continuous operation and solar charging. Common sensor connections include multi-parameter sondes, water quality sensors, temperature strings, Doppler velocity meters, water level sensors, and weather stations. Optional integrated cellular or satellite telemetry modules offer real-time remote communications via the WQData LIVE web datacenter. There, data is presented on a fully-featured and easy-to-use dashboard. Other features include automated reports, alarms, push notifications and much more.

Inside the Struggle to Designate Lake Erie's Water Impaired

Since the mid-1800s, Ohio has been a locus for industry . As the state cranked out steel, rubber, automotive parts, appliances, glassware, and refined oil, its economy grew—but pollution also became a serious problem . Factories dumped refuse into rivers and into Lake Erie, agricultural runoff ended up there, and city sewers also emptied into the lake. By the late 1960s, the Cuyahoga River had caught on fire, and the shores of Lake Erie were lined with dead fish as algal blooms flourished in its waters. The fiery river and the presumed “death†of Lake Erie prompted changes at both the local and national level. Leaders in Cleveland worked to improve the sewage system and monitor water quality more effectively.

Deltas in Decline: Mapping the Retreating Seafloor of the Mississippi River Delta

The rapid coastal land loss that the state of Louisiana has been experiencing over the past century has been reported on many times. We know that Louisiana loses about 1 football field's worth of land every hour, and that some of the first “climate change refugees†in the US are coming from Louisiana as towns like Isle de Jean Charles disappear into the water. New research from a Louisiana State University (LSU) team reveals that land loss is also occurring underwater. The disappearing seafloor in the Mississippi River Delta (MRD) is threatening various marine flora and fauna, and contributing to pollution in the Gulf of Mexico. The team mapped the shrinking seafloor in their study, detailing the effects the loss is having on the region.

Revolutionizing Conventional Solar Water Evaporation With Hydrogels

Saline water—classified as having more than 1,000 ppm of dissolved salts —can be made into freshwater through desalination. The process is typically fueled by the sun, or by some other power source heating the water; after the heat energy turns the saline water into steam, one captures the steam, and then distills it back into water as it cools and condenses. On a small scale, such as that of an individual-sized still, it's a simple, rain-inspired process, albeit a slow one. Large-scale methods are available, but to be practical, these technological processes have to remain on a massive scale, and any way you slice it, they are energy-intensive, costly, and require large-scale facilities.
