Overview
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 timestamp and total rainfall per 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.

Intuitive Levelogger Software
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 correlate 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 directly to a PC, using the Solinst Levelogger App, or a DataGrabber 5 data transfer device.

Interactive
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.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.

Dimethyl Sulfide: A Key to Marine Sulfur Biogeochemistry

Christopher Spiese is assistant dean at the Getty College of Arts & Sciences, acting director of the school of social sciences and human interaction, and associate professor of chemistry at Ohio Northern University. He is also a marine sulfur enthusiast. Marine sulfur biogeochemistry, which involves the cycling of sulfur through aquatic biological and geological systems, is essential for the functioning of marine life. However, the exact chemistry involved is not entirely known, piquing the interest of researchers like Spiese. “I went into marine sulfur biogeochemistry during my graduate work. I completed a doctoral environmental chemistry program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) under David Kieber.
