Thanks for the update Shannon – we have 12 out in the field for collecting soil moisture in a project with the USFS – I should probably update that thread. We are looking to buy 15 more for installation in Vermont now, too.
One cool piece of info for you all is that the Mayflys we had installed over-winter in northern NH made it through -20F temperatures outside their casing. We had a deep cycle battery and solar panel and they capture soil moisture dynamics during winter/spring transition – the first time that has been documented.
A broader question – would Stroud/EnviroDIY like info on how we are using these devices as part of research work? I imagine it may help SWRC’s outreach efforts?
