Levelogger Edge and Barologger Edge Installed in Well using Direct Read Cables to Surface

Automatic Or Manual Barometric Compensation Of Your Levelogger Gold 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… Continue Reading »

Next Olympic Site Uses Levelogger Gold And Junior

As the Olympic torch is passed from our hands in Canada, huge efforts are underway for the 2012 Summer Olympics set to take place in London, England. In preparation for the games, a new Olympic Park is being constructed in Stratford, East London. In the works since 2005, the Park spans 500 acres and features… Continue Reading »

Designing Provincial-Scale Water Monitoring Networks To Meet Future Needs

The symposium continued on Day Two with a presentation from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. The presentation focused on the province-wide stream water and groundwater monitoring networks that are currently being overseen by the Ministry of the Environment in partnership with Conservation Authorities and participating municipalities. These networks monitor ambient (baseline) stream water quality conditions… Continue Reading »

Of Salt And Sand – The Story Of Two Of Nebraska’s Most Unique Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem

Day Two began with a very interesting presentation by Ed Harvey with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Ed presented ongoing research from two of Nebraska’s most unique groundwater dependent ecosystems – Eastern Saline Wetlands and Sandhills Fens. Due to the unique composition of the groundwater that feeds these two ecosystems, the species found in these environments are not native… Continue Reading »

Advances In Environmental Drilling Technologies

Day One ended with a guest speaker from Boart Longyear. Brennan McMahan focused on the use of sonic drilling technology for environmental applications, involving soil samples and groundwater monitoring. Brennan discussed the advantages gained through sonic drilling, talked about the costs involved and showed that this technology is quick and effective in a wide variety… Continue Reading »

High Resolution Subsurface Characterization And Monitoring

The symposium continued with a presentation by Murray Einarson, with AMEC Geomatrix. His presentation was a great follow-up to Dave Rudolph’s, as it presented methods to obtain the valuable data required, particularly in groundwater assessments. Murray provided an overview of the types and scales of measurements that are important during subsurface assessments and new approaches and technologies… Continue Reading »

Emerging Needs For Temporal And Spatial Data Precision

Dave Rudolph, with the University of Waterloo, started the symposium off with a very thought-provoking presentation on the value of diverse and abundant data. Dave used case studies and different modeling methodologies to illustrate how various factors impact the quantity and quality of water resources, and how a small change can affect these conditions quickly and… Continue Reading »
