We are in an area that experiences a 5-6 foot tidal range, and many of our sites are composed of salt marsh with soft, muddy substrate. Has anyone had any issues using the suggested rebar installation in this type of environment? I’d like to avoid the possibility of sediment burying our sensor setup and was curious if anyone had more details or experience with attaching sensors to a buoy. I’m also looking at the possibility of attaching the logger box to a dock (which I think can be achieved with hose clamps) and wondered if anyone had experience attaching sensors to a dock as well (possibly some kind of PVC setup?).
