We’ve received a few questions about salinity measurement compensation when using the miniDOT loggers, so we posted an article about how it can measure oxygen in a saline environment. We hope that it helps you make the most of your miniDOT loggers!
Children’s fishing day celebration suddenly turns ominous as salmon are released in oxygen deprived river
Our miniDOT could be used to test areas of a river over a long period of time to give a better idea of the health of the river. Using more than one miniDOT could also solve problems such as locating where exactly the DO is being absorbed, aiding the efforts to reverse the problem.
RIVER COD (and river cod fishermen) to BENEFIT FROM DISSOLVED OXYGEN MONITORING AND RESTORATION EFFORTS
In this scenario a flood led to a dissolved oxygen and turbidity issue causing many fish and other aquatic animals to die off. Edwards River has since almost recovered, however PME instruments such as the miniDOT DO logger and Cyclops-7 fitted with a turbidity sensor could track the progress more closely.
