Basic Water Level Meter
The Solinst Model 101B Water Level Meter is designed to be an economical and basic, yet durable, instrument to measure groundwater levels. It is ideal for measuring depth to water in wells, boreholes, standpipes, and tanks. Also available from Solinst, are the Standard Model 101 Water Level Meters that feature a laser marked PVDF flat tape, and the Model 102 Coaxial Cable Water Level Meters. Both options allow shut-off and sensitivity adjustment.

Water Level Meter Operating Principles
The Model 101B Water Level Meter uses a solid stainless steel probe, connected to durable polyethylene flat tape. A standard 9 volt battery, housed inside the reel hub, powers the Water Level Meter. The electronics are coated for water resistance. When the probe enters water the electrical circuit is completed, sending a signal back to the reel where a light and clearly audible buzzer are activated. The water level is then determined by taking a reading directly from the tape at the top of the well casing or borehole.

Sturdy Reel and Handle
The Model 101B Water Level Meter has a sturdy frame and ergonomic handle for winding the tape. A brake is also included on the reel. The faceplate is easy to remove in order to access the 9 volt battery for replacement. For convenience, there is also a probe holder on the front of the faceplate.

Robust, Accurate Probe
The Model 101B P1 Probe is made from durable stainless steel. It is designed to reduce false signals in cascading water. The probe is extremely easy to replace.

Heat Embossed Polyethylene Flat Tape
The Model 101B Water Level Meter uses high quality polyethylene flat tape with accurate heat embossed markings every centimeter and meter. The 10mm (3/8") wide tape reels smoothly, remains flexible, hangs straight in the well and is available in 30m, 60m, and 100m lengths. Seven stranded stainless steel conductors resist corrosion, provide strength and are non-stretch. They make the tape very easy to repair and splice. The dog-bone design reduces adherence to wet surfaces.

Birds, Fish and Shifting Sediment; How Lake Erie Buoys Measure It All

Since its population bottomed out, the federally-endangered Piping Plover in the Great Lakes has made a comeback for the ages.  A population that once measured approximately 17 pairs and rebounded, hitting 76 pairs in 2017. The same year that count was made, the plovers had also returned to Gull Point, a nesting location that hadn’t been used in more than 60 years.   In an effort to understand some of the conditions that have allowed this species to return to its habitat, researchers have directed their attention toward a curious instrument for help. A buoy that floats off the coast of Presque Isle State Park , near where Gull Point is located.

Much remains unknown about sharks. The Cal State Shark Lab wants to change that

Thirty years ago, white shark sightings near California’s beaches almost never happened. For Chris Lowe, who was a graduate student at California State University’s Shark Lab at the time, spying a dorsal fin from one of the ocean’s top predators was very rare. Prior to the mid-90’s, an expansive commercial fishing operation and the loss of marine animals decimated white shark populations. If their food wasn’t being hunted, sharks were getting caught in gill nets. At that point, they would be killed anyways before getting brought to the market to be sold. Then in 1994, California residents approved propositions that banned gillnets in state waters and enacted protections for the white shark.

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.
