    Rory G, our Amazon stock is sold out but we should have the storefront restocked soon. Shannon Hicks recently posted this:

    All the starter kits I sent to Amazon at the beginning of the month sold out within a few days…[Read more]

    • That’s great to hear that they’re selling as well as they are and that more are being made available. Is there any thought on if the data logger will be shipped to Canada in the future?

  • Need some guidance on how to install and maintain an EnviroDIY Mayfly Sensor Station? We’ve created new videos that will take you through the 10 steps of collecting quality water monitoring data. The following […]

  • Hi Oscamo. Indeed, I was formerly at Planktos Instruments but now at the Stroud Center. In responding to Sara’s comment about trajectory data being hard to visualize, check out this video showing dissolved oxygen data along 22 miles of the Neuse River in North Carolina.

    We’ve been collecting trajectory data with drifter technology here at the…[Read more]

  • Stroud Water Research Center, in conjunction with the OPEnS Lab at Oregon State University, is excited to host a DIY workshop this September.

    Overview:
    Low-cost, do-it-yourself electronic microcontrollers, […]

  • Sensors, no. Autonomous orthophosphate wet chemistry, yes. Check out Green Eyes Science’s NuLab (http://gescience.com/nulab/) and Seabird’s hydrocycle (https://www.seabird.com/hydrocycle-po/product?id=54721314201). There are others out there, but these come to mind first.

  • I’m connecting an ESP8266 V1.0 with a Mayfly. Can anyone suggest a simple sketch that scans for available wifi networks (and displaying them by printing to the terminal) and displays confirmation of the connection with my wifi by printing something to the terminal? Ultimately, I’d like to send sensor data to Monitor My Watershed, but the first…[Read more]

  • Thank you for the very well-constructed Learn EnviroDIY Programming Tutorial!! I’ve been successfully working through this tutorial in an effort to learn how to use the modular sensors library. This is a tremendous resource for all of us in the EnviroDIY community who are generally intimidated by github and have very little coding experience.…[Read more]

  • @adamgold Hey, Adam. I know you are exploring the Atlas Scientific sensor suite, so I want to connect you with Jim Moore (@w3asa) who has experience with the Atlas sensors. Perhaps one (or both) of you can submit a blog post with your application, hardware, and code?

  • Hi Neil, Good suggestion about “armoring” your cables. Others have done similar things in this region, including flexible steel electrical conduit.

  • A new manual is available that describes how to build, program, install, and maintain an EnviroDIY Mayfly Sensor Station. This manual is the result of years of experience our staff has gained in training over 500 […]

    • Wow. Thankyou Stroud Water team for detailed how-tos. Fantastic stream side setup for Mayfly, as well as good reference material for how to do water quality collection.
      One comment, is that we’ve seen sensor cables being gnawed. So we’ve tended to put the cables communicating to the sensors in a flexible PVC sheath. In the West we also get deeply incised channels, so have greater cable runs to get to a radio horizon.
