Coastal zones are rich in biodiversity and valued for their ecological significance and natural resources, often supporting unique and important habitats. Many ecosystems in these areas are also fragile and increasingly at risk from strong growth and development occurring along coastlines.
For this reason, it is vital to study the ecology in coastal regions and understand how these natural systems respond to changing environmental conditions. Data from monitoring programs can offer significant insights for helping better manage and protect these valuable ecosystems.
Onset data loggers provide researchers, ecologists, and planners with reliable tools for monitoring coastal and marine environments and assessing potential impacts from human activities and global climate change.
The HOBO U24-002-C is a cost-effective data logger for measuring salinity, conductivity and temperature in saltwater environments with relatively small changes in salinity (±5,000 μS/cm) such as saltwater bays, or to detect salinity events such as upwelling, rainstorm, and discharge events.
The HOBO U26 Dissolved Oxygen Logger is a highly precise, low-cost data logger for measuring concentrations of oxygen in lakes, streams, rivers, estuaries, and coastal waters. Used by aquatic biologists, hydrologists, and other research professionals, the HOBO U26 combines the high accuracy, robust performance of industry-leading RDO® Basic (Rugged Dissolved Oxygen) sensor technology with an easy-to-maintain design.
