Understand wetland environments better with Bluetooth data loggers
Wetland monitoring is an essential process for assessing the health and integrity of wetland ecosystems. It is a necessary tool used by a variety of organisations to create environmental standards, study climate change, and develop restoration and mitigation plans. Wetlands provide a variety of services, including flood control, water filtration, and as habitats for a diversity of species. To ensure their continued survival, it is critical to monitor and evaluate their health regularly.
Portable data loggers are essential tools used by many professionals in the field of wetland monitoring. These loggers can be deployed and left unattended for months at a time,collecting data at specified intervals,and storing them digitally in the logger's memory. By operating in a continuous 24/7 monitoring mode, data loggers eliminate many of the hassles of manual data collection and facilitate monitoring of multiple locations at the same time.
Accurate data logging for effective conservation
Different types of data loggers can be used to monitor different aspects of wetlands, including water level, rainfall, water temperature, water conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and air temperature/relative humidity. Each logger serves a specific purpose, and collecting data on multiple environmental conditions is necessary to evaluate a wetland's health adequately, including:
Water level to understand wetland water retention, rising water rates and runoff volume.
Rainfall to compare water retained versus rainfall received.
Temperature to monitor water temperatures above water ways.
Conductivity to identify when contamination occurs and help identify the source.
Dissolved Oxygen (DO) to identify habitat stress when dissolved oxygen levels drop.
pH to ensure pH is suitable for aquatic life in wetlands.
By monitoring environmental conditions, professionals can track the health and progress of wetlands. Data loggers are essential tools used in wetland monitoring and provide an efficient and effective way of collecting data.
Explore the range of Bluetooth Data Loggers below to help you better understand your wetlands to help protect these vital habitats.
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 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 Water Level data logger features high accuracy at a great price and ease-of-use, with no cumbersome vent tubes or desiccants to maintain. This data logger is ideal for recording water levels and temperatures in shallow wells, streams, lakes and freshwater wetlands. For saltwater deployments, such as brackish wetlands and tidal areas, see HOBO U20 Water Level Titanium.
A waterproof data logger with both an internal sensor and an external sensor that’s designed for monitoring fast-changing temperatures; can be deployed just above water or soil, for the most convenient wireless data download to your mobile device or laptop.
