Water Level Dataloggers For Assessing & Monitoring Stormwater Controls

Stormwater monitoring is ever increasing in importance. With continued development and urbanization, comes the loss of green space—space that once absorbed stormwater runoff. These areas are replaced by impervious surfaces such as roads, rooftops, and parking lots. Altering land-use leads to considerable changes in the natural drainage pattern. Stormwater management creates a new pattern designed… Continue Reading »

Barometric Compensation And The Importance Of Barometric Data

Download Technical Bulletin Barometric Compensation Barometric compensation has traditionally been performed using a vent tube leading from the surface down to the transducer. This vent tube terminates behind the transducer diaphragm, providing a cancellation effect for barometric pressure. However, there is no possibility to review the associated barometric data. Solinst decided the Levelogger Edge would… Continue Reading »

5 Tips To Ensure Accurate LTC Levelogger Edge Calibration

Conductivity measurement devices have sensors that require calibration to ensure optimum performance. The frequency of calibration is largely dependent on the quality of the water it’s been exposed to during deployment. The conductivity sensor of an LTC Levelogger Edge is highly accurate and sensitive, therefore requires regular calibration. As a minimum, calibrate your LTC Levelogger… Continue Reading »
