We evaluated the positives and negatives of using Maxbotix MB7389 ultrasonic sensors for monitoring baseflow stream levels.
Regular cleaning of your EnviroDIY Monitoring Station sensors is the most important step in making sure you are collecting meaningful data.
One area of vulnerability for EnviroDIY Monitoring Stations is rodent damage and in particular beavers. Beaver tend to bite anything that gets in their way while in the water and they have very sharp teeth!
This document outlines what you will need to build a Continuous Temperature Logger with the EnviroDIY Mayfly Data Logger. This is a great EnviroDIY starter project and utilizes the Mayfly Data Logger and a OneWire Temperature Sensor.
A low-cost electrical conductivity sensor using the Mayfly platform was developed in part to support efforts to study the effects of stormwater runoff into Great Marsh in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
