Experimental set up

  • Measurement of rainfall through 30 tipping bucket rain gauges and 30 mini-loggers
  • Data transmission from 30 mini loggers via radio to a central enviLog datalogger (as a main logger for a total of 42 mini loggers - 30 mini loggers for inventory rainfall plus 12 mini loggers to measure base runoff volumes)
  • Automated remote data transmission from the main logger enviLog via GPRS to a database server and from there to the user PC
  • Aliquot discharge in PE sample bottles for laboratory analysis
  • Installation and commissioning by ecoTech
