PME miniDOT Dissolved Oxygen Logger

Overview
The PME miniDOT is a submersible instrument that includes an optical dissolved oxygen sensor, a temperature sensor, batteries and a micro SD memory card. Data is recorded internally with a sample interval from once per minute to once per hour and can be offloaded to a computer via USB cable.

Internal Storage
The miniDOT sensor is an optode that measures lifetime-based luminescence quenching of a thin membrane. The sensing foil contains a coating with a variable fluorescence that depends on oxygen concentration in the surrounding water. The sensor can compute dissolved oxygen concentration in mg/L and record these measurements internally. Each logger is factory-calibrated at 12 dissolved oxygen concentrations, each at 8 temperatures, for a total of 96 calibration points.

Included with miniDOT logger (Part #7450):

  • miniDOT dissolved oxygen logger

Included with miniDOT logger with wiper bundle (Part #9190):

  • miniDOT dissolved oxygen logger
  • miniWIPER anti-fouling sensor wiper
  • miniWIPER bracket
  • anti-fouling copper plate (with hardware)
Questions & Answers
How does the miniDOT measure dissolved oxygen?
The PME miniDOT determines DO in water using an optode that measures flourescence.
What software comes with the dissolved oxygen logger?
The PME miniDOT includes free Java-based Windows software for configuration the logger and offloading data. The software will also compute oxygen saturation from the miniDOT logger measurements. A USB to micro USB cable is sold separately and required to communicate with the logger.
How long will the battery last?
With a 1-minute sample interval, the logger will remain powered for approximately 1-year.
What are the recommended replacement batteries for the miniDOT logger?
PME states that Alkaline batteries are good for short deployments, where lithium batteries are best for longer deployments, or deployments in cold environments. Battery life and other options are discussed further on page 10 of manual.
Is the software the same for the PME miniDOT and Cyclops-7 Loggers?
While the software is similar for these loggers, in that you can change sampling rates and other settings, they are different programs. The software is loaded onto the logger and can be accessed by connecting to a computer with the USB communication cable.
What is the expected lifespan for the PME miniDOT Logger?
With proper care, maintenance and calibrations PME Loggers can operate well beyond 5 years.

Duality of Science: The Importance of Science Communication for Promoting Change

It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.  From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.

Thin Ice: Monitoring Winter Lake Dynamics at Mohonk Lake

Historically, water quality monitoring during the winter has been difficult and often avoided altogether—however, monitoring throughout the year can highlight the influence of various environmental stressors and track the changes systems undergo during the winter. In particular, long-term monitoring efforts in systems like Mohonk Lake can underline the effects of climate change and acid rain. David Richardson, a professor of biology at the  State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz , spends his time outside of the classroom monitoring the nearby watersheds. After getting his engineering undergraduate degree, Richardson realized he wasn't interested in the typical job offerings and applied to an ecological science graduate program at the University of Maryland.

Protecting Natural Resources: Long-Term Monitoring in Acadia National Park

The United States' national parks are visited by millions of people each year, providing opportunities to experience the local beauty of the U.S. A core mission of the National Park Service (NPS) is to protect and preserve these unique areas since they are not totally free of pollution and the influence of climate change. As such, national parks are the site of many environmental monitoring programs designed to assess the effects of global stressors like climate change and pollution on park resources. Acadia National Park's water and air monitoring programs are examples of this, providing a long-term data history documenting changes in air and water quality over the past four decades.
