Watershed Hydrology

While in the park earlier this month , my curious eye caught this man made object . I certainly don't want to interfere with scientific research , and I did not disturb this object . Just curious to learn more about what this instrument may be measuring and why .
Any thoughts ?
There is a small sticker on the side    Watershed Hydrology Labs

Re: Watershed Hydrology

funny you should post this now, John, as I just witnessed the exact same object on Little Cauchon Lake a couple days ago. I did not get close enough to read the sticker, but I did paddle up to it and wondered what it was from the boat. Mystery solved - and in just a matter of days too!

Re: Watershed Hydrology

The ones we've seen around home are measuring the amount of groundwater, and its fluctuations.

Generally seen in what we used to call "swamp land".  Now known as "development potential" in real estate speak.

Re: Watershed Hydrology

Yah 71 , sure does have the look , although there wasn't a power source .
Given the colours of this scientific instrument , black and blue , it's more than likely similar to the sump pump working hard ta pump the sludge and tears from the Tampa Bay dressing room . ( Big Smile )

Re: Watershed Hydrology

the sump pump will though probably leave enough water for the sharks to be able to swim in look of their prey.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Watershed Hydrology

The warmer waters of this unusual spring seems to have slowed down the larger predator , having them to resort to hacking and chopping , in attempts to follow their swifter prey ...... Eh !

Re: Watershed Hydrology

Well the smaller creature seems to thrive in its home environment. It will be interesting to see how it survives in the unfamiliar waters on the west coast where the larger predator in its home environment will surely be able to corner the flightless bird once they get it in deep.
