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.
Your current working life will certainly look similar to the cover picture for many of you. Most of us from OTT HydroMet are working from home, as well. In order to usefully bridge this time, we set up an interdisciplinary online seminar program for you to keep you up to date despite the COVID 19 crisis…
Groundwater measurements on site are time-consuming and cause easily avoidable costs. The same applies to maintenance visits to the device. When developing our new OTT ecoLog 1000 groundwater data logger, Product Manager Peter Schaeffeler and his team had a clear goal: To make measurement, data transmission and maintenance as efficient, convenient, safe and cost-saving as possible.
It can be difficult to select monitoring technology for flooding applications when each step of building a network, from sensors to dataloggers to visualization software, has multiple options.
Flooding is a natural process, but it can cause heavy economic loss and endangers lives. Flood risk is expected to increase with climate change and increased urbanisation, so a heavy responsibility lies with those that allocate funding and formulate flood management strategy. In the following article, Nigel Grimsley from OTT Hydromet in the UK explains how the success of such plans (both the design and implementation) depend on the accuracy and reliability of the monitoring data upon which they depend.
The smart OTT ecoLog 1000 water level logger has been available since August 2019 – but do you know all its features and benefits yet? Product Manager Peter Schaeffeler presented everything you should know to get started in a recent webinar and answered occurring questions. Here you can find the recording…
