Scientists and educators around the world have been building their own dataloggers and devices using a variety of open source electronics platforms like Arduino®. Here we introduce resources and tools that you can use to build real-time, low-cost data loggers that can form the core of your DIY freshwater or terrestrial monitoring system.

This webinar will introduce attendees to the resources, tutorials, and processes for building a monitoring station that includes a solar-powered datalogger connected to radio telemetry that is flexible to connect to a variety of sensors. Examples of commercially available sensors for measuring water depth, temperature, specific conductivity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, precipitation, soil moisture, and soil redox conditions will be shown/discussed. Various deployment options/strategies for stream-side installations will be presented.

Participants will be introduced to an option for web-based data capture and live data streaming that can display graphs on custom web pages. Additionally, participants will be introduced to our EnviroDIY online community, where members can share new ideas about open-source hardware and software solutions for observing our environment. EnviroDIY members can showcase their gadgets or describe their projects, ask questions, or follow along with helpful tutorials.
