Barometric Compensation And The Importance Of Barometric Data

Download Technical Bulletin Barometric Compensation Leveloggers measure total pressure (water column equivalent + barometric pressure). In order to accurately determine the true changes in water level only, barometric pressure fluctuations must be removed from the data.  The simplest method to accomplish this is by the use of a Barologger suspended above high water level in… Continue Reading »

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… Continue Reading »

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 »

Absolute Vs. Vented Pressure

  The Solinst Levelogger is based on an absolute pressure transducer. This means the Levelogger senses and presents all the pressure it is under, both water pressure (hydraulic head) and air pressure (barometric or atmospheric pressure). However, most users are interested in just the water level or hydraulic head, so Solinst offers a separate logger, the… Continue Reading »
