Ideal for monitoring flows in canals, culverts, pipes, and natural streams, the SonTek-IQ starts with a custom flow algorithm derived from hundreds of field measurements. Four velocity beams profile water velocity along both the length and width of the channel, to ensure best possible coverage and most accurate representation of the velocity field. The built-in pressure sensor and vertical acoustic beam work in tandem to measure water level. Simply input the channel geometry using the intuitive SonTek-IQ software and you are outputting flow data in minutes.

Capable of working both in man-made as well as natural channels, the SonTek-IQ can collect flow (area-velocity) and volume data in as little as 8 cm (3 in) of water. Its five-beam pulsed Doppler design is Modbus, SDI-12, RS232 and Analog ready. Even better news - the SonTek-IQ installs with limited or no earthworks. With the SonTek-IQ, expect to get quality data for quality decision making.

  • Self contained all-in-one design
  • Proprietary flow algorithms for irrigation canals, natural streams and pipes
  • Uses SonTek's exclusive SmartPulseHD adaptive sampling
  • Self-calibrating water level using vertical acoustic beam and pressure
  • Standard package includes the SonTek-IQ, IQ software, easy mounting hardware, cable, adaptor and power supply

The SonTek-IQ Standard, the SonTek-IQ Plus and SonTek-IQ Pipe all operate at 3 MHz. The Standard model works in depths up to 1.5 m (5 ft), while the Plus and Pipe model are ideal for water depths up to 5m (16 ft). The SonTek-IQ Plus/Pipe also incorporates advanced post-processing functions, providing deeper insight into your flow and volume data. All models use SonTek's proprietary algorithm SmartPulseHD.

The Frozen Frontier: Chasing Data in Antarctica

For Paul Savoy, sailing on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel as part of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) has been a dream come true, a “mountain top” for his career. “I grew up reading about the age of exploration, and the great polar explorers back in the day. Antarctica is one of the last remaining frontiers, along with the deep ocean and outer space. I was delighted to discover Antarctic research covers all three, with deep ocean research happening on the icebreakers and cosmological experiments at the South Pole. I’ve been applying for a job down here since I was 18. I got shortlisted a few times, but never actually got picked up until I was 32. Now I’m 35, and finally headed to the ice.

New Environmental Sensors and Data Acquisition Knowledge Base

NexSens Technology has worked for over two decades to simplify complex environmental data acquisition systems. The core components of these systems have always been the development of data loggers, configuration and data management software, and simplified sensor integrations. NexSens is excited to bring a new dimension to another critical aspect of real-time environmental monitoring: environmental sensors and data acquisition documentation through the revamped online Knowledge Base. The Knowledge Base serves as a living library, featuring the most thorough information, start-up instructions, integration guides, and other documentation available for NexSens systems and products.

The Tiniest Cars: Understanding the Effects of Microplastics on Coral

Like the microplastics she studies, Keiko Wilkins arrived at this point in her life through a long, multi-dimensional, and at times unexpected journey. Today she is a second-year graduate student in the doctoral program at the University of Hawaii , a graduate assistant at Kewalo Marine Laboratory , but her journey began in Pickerington, Ohio, a far cry from the sea. “I always had an interest in water, and I swam competitively,” she recalls. “I knew I wanted to study biology, but did I want to do research or education? So I explored biology further. My academic advisor worked on lakes and I focused on zooplankton in lakes, and changes in their populations. Fascinated by the ocean, I wanted to study it, but in Ohio, the ocean is, of course, out of reach.
