Latest GPRS telemetry units and RS Hydros Flowview online data portal provide a total solution for Aberystwyth Universities environmental study of Tregaron Peat Bog.Aberystwyth University have undertaken a baseline environmental study of Tregaron Peat Bog to assess the impact of reopened paleo channels on the ecosystem. The remote and inaccessible location of the peat bog would make long term spot sampling inefficient and costly, so a different approach was needed. It was decided that temperature, level, turbidity and pH would be measured at two sites, one downstream and one upstream of the proposed impact area. RS Hydro were approached to provide all equipment and systems for the project, including parameter measurement, data logging and data transmission. For parameter measurement the industry leading Manta2 multi-parameter sonde was chosen. It’s unrivalled accuracy, robust construction and low power consumption made it ideal for the application.
