How to Perform a Barometric Compensation using the Data Wizard

In a previous blog post, we discussed the need for, and importance of, barometrically compensating your Levelogger data. Now we will discuss how to actually go about doing a barometric compensation. Here we will focus on our recommended method, which is by using a Barologger and the Levelogger Software Data Wizard. (Click here to read […]

5 Tips for Accurate Solinst TLC Meter Calibration

Solinst TLC Meters provide accurate water level, temperature and conductivity measurements. They are ideal for well profiling, monitoring salt water intrusion and for providing a general indication of water quality, at specific depths. With use, a TLC Meter probe can become slightly degraded due to mechanical, biological, or chemical effects. If you find that your […]

Accounting for Altitude when Compensating Levelogger Data

Barometric Compensation Review As you know, Leveloggers measure total or absolute pressure. When submerged, they record a combination of atmospheric pressure and water pressure above their sensor. Because the intent of using Leveloggers is to obtain fluctuations in water pressure only, their data must be compensated for atmospheric effects. In order to achieve this, atmospheric […]

New Simplified Data Wizard Makes Barometric Compensation Easy

Because the goal of Leveloggers is to provide fluctuations in water pressure only, their data must be compensated for barometric effects. In order to achieve this, barometric pressure must be subtracted from the Levelogger readings to give actual water level data.

Automatic or Manual Barometric Compensation of Your Levelogger Data

Automatic Barometric Compensation Submersed Leveloggers measure total or absolute pressure (water column equivalent + barometric pressure). In order to accurately determine the true changes in water level only, barometric pressure fluctuations must be taken into account. The simplest method to accomplish this is by the use of a Barologger suspended above high water level in one well […]

Low Flow Sampling

Low flow purging and sampling involves extracting groundwater at rates comparable to ambient groundwater flow (typically less than 500 ml/min), so that the drawdown of the water level is minimized, and the mixing of stagnant water with water from the screened intake area in a well is reduced. Solinst Bladder Pumps are able to provide flow rates […]
