Water Quality Monitoring at Bath Nature Preserve
Dr. Jessica Hopkins recently established a remote stream monitoring system at the Bath Nature Preserve. Four sensors, located in Yellow Creek and Bath Creek, are collecting near real-time data on various stream variables and sending that information to a computer server at the Field Station via radio telemetry. Below, you can see the data as they are collected and updated. To see more, including a site map, click the “All Data” button on the applet.
