The Solinst Levelogger Biofoul Screen is an affordable option to lengthen the time a Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge, or LTC Levelogger Junior can be deployed before maintenance is required.

 

When a Levelogger is deployed for extended periods, especially in coastal and saltwater environments, there is the risk of biofouling. Biofouling on the pressure sensor or conductivity cell can compromise the reliability of the readings.

 

Using the natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper, the Biofoul Screen is designed to reduce the unwanted buildup of microorganisms, plants, algae, or organisms such as barnacles and mussels.

 

The Biofoul Screen consists of a Delrin sleeve wrapped with copper wire. The Biofoul Screen simply slips onto the sensor end of the Levelogger, where it is held in place by friction fit. The screen allows water to freely enter the pressure sensor of any Levelogger, and the conductivity cell of an LTC.

REASON Project Puts Water Quality Instrumentation in Dams

Where and how to monitor water quality is always a challenge, particularly in complex aquatic ecosystems. The new REASON Project from a team at Clarkson University is working to demonstrate the utility of using water quality instrumentation in dams on major rivers in the Great Lakes system. Clarkson University Professor of Biology Michael Twiss spoke with EM about the new approach their team is taking at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam across the St. Lawrence River and the benefits the development of smart infrastructure such as this might offer. “The upper St. Lawrence River is defined as that which leaves Lake Ontario and is just upstream from the city of Montreal,” explains Dr. Twiss.

A Lesson in Persistence: Taking On Cyanobacteria in Florida

As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis. The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it. “This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.” Dr.

Keeping TABS on the Texas Gulf Coast

From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture. Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS. “TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.
