The dissolved oxygen sensor is an interchangeable sensor that works with HOBO MX800 Series Water Loggers to measure dissolved oxygen and temperature. The DO sensor can be attached directly to the fully submersible MX801 model, or attached via cable to the direct read MX802 model, which doesn’t require having to pull the sensor out of the water to download data.

When this sensor is connected to a HOBO MX800 logger that also has a conductivity or CTD sensor attached, the logger can record salinity-adjusted DO directly. With this sensor attached to the HOBO MX802 direct read model, the logger can calculate DO percent saturation directly. When used with fully submersible HOBO MX801 model, a barometric logger data file (from either an MX802 or MX2001 logger) is needed to calculate DO percent saturation, for post-processing in the HOBOconnect app. In waters with changing salinity, the logger must also have a salinity sensor attached or you will need an MX800 salinity data file to get DO percent saturation.

 

  • User-replaceable DO cap lasts 2 years or more
  • High accuracy measurements, even without calibration
  • Get salinity-adjusted DO directly when used with conductivity sensor (W-CT or W-CTD), no need for post-processing
  • Direct DO percent saturation data, no need for post-processing (when used with MX802)
  • Easy calibration with included calibration boot – saves time
  • 1” diameter for use in narrow wells (with cable to MX802 above the well)
  • PVC housing holds up in saltwater

Soundscapes of the Solar Eclipse: Citizen Science Supporting National Research

On April 8, 2024, millions of people around the world had their eyes glued to the sky to witness a historic cosmic event. The total solar eclipse captured the headlines and the minds of many who became eager to gaze at the heavens as the sky went dark for a few minutes. However, not everyone used their sense of sight during the eclipse, some were listening to the sounds of the natural world around them as the light faded from above. The Eclipse Soundscape Project is a NASA-funded citizen science project that focuses on studying how the annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, and the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse impacted life on Earth.  The project revisits an initiative from the 1930s that showed animals and insects are affected by solar eclipses.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.
