When the COVID 19 outbreak prevented us from offering on-site training between April and June, we created a comprehensive and versatile live webinar program as an alternative. Topics included flood warning, discharge measurement, water level monitoring, data logging, network management, and data transmission solutions. These webinars are now available as on-demand versions.
There are many steps to maintain reliable, accurate surface water quantity data across your hydrology network, especially in the face of technology advances, changing regulations, and security updates. And when circumstances make it difficult to get out into the field, or when your team is limited on time or resources, maintaining a network can feel challenging.
One of the most important challenges, when designing monitoring facilities in remote locations, is resilience. Remote tide gauge systems operate in extremely harsh environments and require robust communications systems that almost never fail and are capable of storing large amounts of data locally as extra protection for data. Scientists from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) are therefore upgrading the South Atlantic Tide Gauge Network (SATGN) to include the latest low power dataloggers with built-in satellite telemetry capability – the SatLink 3 from OTT HydroMet.

Data loggers play a crucial role as the brain of a monitoring station, by storing data, calculating parameters, sending alarms, and more. And by using telemetry or remote communication to send data from a data logger, you can almost instantly access your data via computer, server, or smartphone to view and further process.
Even the best developer can’t read minds, so we need your support: With the help of a current survey, we would like to gain insight into your everyday work and find out how well the data loggers you use meet your requirements. Our goal is to use the results to develop data loggers meeting your requirements.
This Tech Tip explains how to set up automatic data transmission from OTT netDL to an FTP server via a mobile Internet connection (GPRS). Please mind that encryption is not possible (sFTP or FTPs are not supported by OTT netDL).
Recently, there have been many reports in the media about changes in the mobile communications landscape. It is to be assumed that mobile phone providers will soon or in some cases dismantle or shut down their 3G network – also known as UMTS – today already.

Because of the remote locations and naturally harsh environments of many water resources, monitoring and communicating the resulting data is not always simple or straightforward. Telemetry is an automated process for performing measurements and collecting data back to receiving equipment for analysis. Remote or inaccessible locations require the use of different radio communication technologies integrated into the telemetry system to transmit the information. Therefore, a remote telemetry system is a necessary tool for many water resource monitoring professionals.
