In order to gather data on water quality around the clock, the Estuary Program installs special monitoring equipment that can stay submerged under water, logging changes in water temperature, salinity, and other factors. The EXO3 sonde (center), is housed in the protective case (left) and placed in a local creek. When staff are ready to look at the data the sonde has collected, they bring the handheld data logger (right), hook it up to the sonde, and upload it to a tablet. They can then log and analyze the data as needed.
