Hydrology studies play a crucial role in water resources management; they are utilized to develop more effective solutions for issues related to water availability and water allocation. Hydrologist-led research provides vital information for flood forecasting, water supply determinations, water conservation studies, reservoir operations, and in the planning of large-scale water projects.
For conducting hydrologic investigations, monitoring tools record water level and flow data from waterways, lakes, groundwater systems, and other aquatic resources—capturing vital information for analyzing conditions, studying changes over time, and supporting decisions.
Onset offers a range of robust data loggers for use in long-term monitoring of water environments, providing hydrologists with accurate measurements and reliable performance in severe and challenging conditions.
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.
The MX2001 Water Level Sensor is used with the HOBO Bluetooth Water Level Data Logger (MX2001), the HOBO MicroRX Water Level Stations (RX2103 and RX2104), or the HOBO RX3000 Remote Monitoring Station for accurate water pressure, temperature, and water level measurements.
