The Rainlogger 5 is an inexpensive datalogger designed to record the tips of a standard tipping-bucket rain gauge. This compact and durable field unit offers long-term reliability and convenience with a battery that lasts up to 10 years, and ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection with an ABS housing. The event time stamp and total rainfall per time period is logged in non-volatile memory, which holds up to 100,000 readings. Sampling is event based, as the Rainlogger 5 records and saves each tip of the tipping-bucket as it happens.

Levelogger customers can add rainfall data to their water level monitoring networks using the intuitive Levelogger Software. The Rainlogger 5 provides easy incorporation of precipitation data into existing Levelogger data. Rainfall data can allow correlation between precipitation events and changes in groundwater or surface water levels. The Rainlogger 5 is compatible with all Solinst Levelogger 5 communication and deployment accessories. Logged data can be downloaded direct to a PC, your smart device using the Solinst Levelogger App, or to a DataGrabber 5 data transfer device.

The Rainlogger 5 is simply programmed with the user-friendly Levelogger Software. A Field Reader 5 or Desktop Reader 5 connects the Rainlogger 5 to a laptop or desktop PC and the Levelogger Software automatically detects the attached Rainlogger. The Rainlogger 5 is easily deployed in the field, using a 3-pin connector cable attached to the rain gauge. Data downloading can be ‘All Data’, ‘Append Data’, or ‘Data Dump’ at any time. Data can be displayed in graph or table format and exported to other programs. The Rainlogger 5 has self-test capability, reliable memory and the ability to upgrade firmware.

Questions & Answers
Will the rainlogger output total rainfall as well as tips?

Yes, the Rainlogger Edge records each tip and outputs the amount of rainfall per programmed time period based on user-input tip-bucket volume. The Rainlogger can also determine max rainfall per sampling interval.

What instruments are compatible with the Rainlogger Edge?

In addition to any reed- switch tipping bucket rain gauge, the Rainlogger Edge is compatible with all Solinst Levelogger communication and deployment accessories. Logged data can be downloaded directly to a PC, Leveloader or through a telemetry system.

Balancing Forest Biodiversity and Land Use Benefits

A new study by Fangyuan Hua, Assistant Professor at Peking University’s Institute of Ecology, compiles data showing that restoring native forests results in better biodiversity, greater carbon storage and more soil conservation and water provisioning benefits. However, the data also indicates that tree plantations are better at providing wood. The benefits and downsides of each forest type lead to tradeoffs in land management practices. In their paper , Hua and colleagues explore the advantages and disadvantages of different forest types, hoping to point the way toward better forest restoration practices. They hope to encourage practices that balance environmental goals with wood production needs.

Protecting Endangered Species: Conducting Mussel Surveys

*This is part two of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part one, click here * With over 300 endangered mussel species in the United States, environmental agencies like EnviroScience rise to the challenge of protecting these vital species. When new construction sites are determined, the Endangered Species Act steps in to protect any endangered wildlife within the impacted area. Unfortunately, the protocols surrounding these protections can be complex and difficult to understand, making the work of scientists like Greg Zimmerman, Corporate Vice President for EnviroScience and an endangered mussel surveyor, vital to protecting biodiversity.

Protecting Endangered Species: Why Freshwater Mussels Matter

*This is part one of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part two, click here * Though few people pay any mind to the occasional “clam” shell spotted along a river bank or lake, these small but mighty creatures are deeply important to water systems across the United States, and many of them are federally and state endangered. Greg Zimmerman of EnviroScience, Inc.  shares, “We have about 300 species of mussels in the U.S., compared to other regions of the world like Europe that have under 20 species.” Zimmerman spent his life around water and always knew he wanted to return to help protect aquatic ecosystems. “I’ve always had a love of water, since I was 2. I grew up on an island in Buckeye Lake in Ohio.
