ONSET ANNOUNCES BEST PRACTICES GUIDE ON MONITORING WETLANDS
BOURNE, MA, February 2, 2011 - Wetlands act as a natural filter for polluted water and thus play an essential role in water quality protection. They serve as floodwater storage to help minimize erosion, and create a habitat for many fish and wildlife.
While a variety of factors have decreased the number of wetlands in the U.S. by half since 1950, many organizations are restoring wetlands back to their original flourishing ecosystems. To ensure success, it is necessary to monitor wetland environmental conditions such as water level, temperature, and rainfall.
A new best practices guide from Onset entitled, Monitoring Wetlands with Portable Data Loggers, shares field-proven best practices for configuring, launching and deploying portable data loggers in wetland monitoring applications. A range of data logger types is covered, and tips are provided on data logger installation and maintenance.
